Developing daily living and life skills
The learning of everyday living and life skills focuses on the participant's or their caregiver's ability to live as independently as possible through training and development activities. Individual or community training may be offered in areas such as everyday living skills, communication and social skills, problem-solving, and handling support funding. To help participants deal with these issues, we include a variety of training and learning programmes aimed at improving their ability to handle day-to-day life by expanding their awareness, skills, and support networks.
