Working to help Care Experienced Young People with their psychological health, independent living skills, social and emotional well-being in their community. Do you feel like you are struggling in any of these areas?Regulating your emotionsProblem solvingManaging DistressRelationship and Social skillsWe understand that these areas can be hard to manage, so we aim to support young people, like yourself, in developing healthy skills/strategies to make these areas of life a little easier to cope with. The interventions provided by the Skills for Living team will also be extended to those who support you and/or your carers. If they have an understanding of the skills/strategies you are learning, they will be better able to support you with these as well.Our project has 3 main components, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills Groups, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Groups and independent living Skills groups. All elements include extensive 1-2-1 support.
You must be a care experienced young person between the ages of 14 and 24. You must be living within Ynys Mon, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham or Powys.
Usually your social worker or personal advisor would refer you, however you and others can also refer into the project.
