About this department
Our Life Skills department aims to expand the skills of our Trainees and promote their independence. We will offer training such as using household items, for example; a washing machine, an iron, microwave and a cooker.
We also are working with a local nurse to have health and hygiene discussions and have organised for a counsellor to visit . We allow all trainees and staff the opportunity to chat to the counsellor or the nurse in confidence if they feel they would like to but it is not compulsory.
The life Skills opportunities are available to all those working with Next Steps but if you feel you know someone who would particularly benefit or be interested in developing their skills, we can discuss this and will ensure they spend time here.
