Learning disability services
We support adults with a learning disability to lead full and independent lives.
Our approach is to be person-centered and to put the people we support at the heart of everything we do.
Our services are flexible and customer- led and offer a range of services to meet social, housing, health and well-being needs in a variety of settings. We support people who have a variety of needs. From low level support to more intensive packages of care, we also provide services to individuals who have autism or require specialist support around behaviour management or communication.

Skills for Life
Skills for Life was developed to enable people with learning disabilities and/or mental health needs to move from dependent lifestyles to a more independent way of living. We do this by providing access to community based training and offering day opportunities.
Our activities include Independent Living Skills which develop students existing skills and teach new skills to promote independence. We also provide Health Groups, including football sessions run by Wolverhampton Wanderers coaches and horticulture sessions at the nearby Old Tree Nursery. Finally, we have structured Social Groups where students build confidence, interact with other students and have fun!
Our trained and experience tutors and support workers lead the activities and are always on hand to offer friendly help and advice.
