Mentoring for Independence


The Mentoring for Independence project supports young people, aged between 13 and 25 years old, to learn Independent Living Skills, through the transition of being a child, to becoming a young adult.

Skills include:

  • Travel Training
  • Cooking
  • Budgeting
  • Personal Care
  • Social Awareness


Young people will gain confidence, self esteem, friendships, practical and emotional support, in a safe, flexible, friendly and fun environment.

The bespoke project is delivered in 3 hour sessions, Thursdays during school term, at the Independent Living Hub, and includes support from experienced staff and the use of building based resources, such as accessible kitchen, computers and a Nintendo Wii in our chill out room.  

Sessions may also be available during school and college holidays, evenings and weekends, with opportunities to access social and leisure opportunities.
