Maybe you’d like to learn to cook or manage everyday household duties. Or perhaps you want to feel confident using technology like a computer or iPad, or travelling on public transport by yourself. When you build your life skills, you build your independence too.
Develop social skills
Meeting new people and developing friendships are important parts of creating an enjoyable and fulfilling life. As you practice your communication skills, your confidence will grow.

When you feel good, you can get the most out of life. Learning to plan and cook healthy meals, going to the gym or joining a sporting team are all ways to make sure you feel your best, while developing valuable skills along the way.
