Life Skills is a day programme aimed at young people who have left school or are in their final years of schooling. A group of 3 or 4 young people of similar age/ability select skills they see as useful to them, and work on them together, with guidance from the Recreate facilitator.


At Life Skills, young people develop confidence and skill in areas such as independence, socialisation, healthy living and entering the workforce. This programme can also cover a variety of practical skills such as cooking, public transport, fitness, money handling and making friends, depending on the wishes of the group.
