GROUP BASED INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS

20170824_112814.jpg

ForwardLiving is our group-based independent living skills program to prepare young people to transition to the next stage of adulthood. With structured weekly skill building programs supporting areas such as travel training, accessing community amenities independently, completing household tasks, knowing what to do when things go wrong, and self-care. Our young people also volunteer, providing them with opportunities to build communication, team work and job skills relevant to gaining employment.

Because young people with additional needs are often quite vulnerable, we have a large focus on safety skills, participating in regular self-defence sessions at the Arena. This is to enable young people to have the confidence to take advantage of the opportunities while having the knowledge of how to avoid dangerous situations.
