The Life Skills Project

Mark Taylor Support Ltd is excited to announce a brand new piece of work – The Life Skills Project.

Following consultation with service users, parents and carers we are launching our Life Skills Project in partnership with Hollinswood and Randlay Parish Council with the aim of offering user led, bespoke Life Skills Programmes, within a small group setting.

The small group setting will allow the Life Skills Project to focus on individual needs whilst developing independence through life long learning and community integration.

The Life Skills Project sessions will run on a Monday between 9am and 3pm and will be based at the Hollinswood Community Centre, 7 Downmead, Telford TF3 2EW

The initial ‘Introduction to Life Skills’ programme will be running across a 14 week term from Monday 17 September to Monday 17 December 2018.

There are 8 user places available on the initial programme, which is open to users 16 years and over.

The project will be led by the Project Manager – Jodie Sands and supported by a minimum of 2 support assistants, thus meaning the project will be working within a ratio of 1 member of staff to 3 service users.

The project will provide a progression pathway from the Introduction to Life Skills programme via a range of user led choice programmes.

Support costs from £62 per day based on users accessing a full-term programme. This cost is inclusive of all programme content, activities and lunch.

1:1/2:1 support and transport support will be available on request, with additional charges applicable.

A more detailed outline of the Introduction to Life Skills Programme is available within The Life Skills Project Overview.

A PDF version of The Life Skills Project Flyer can also be accessed here.

If you would like to register a firm interest or have any questions about any of the information outlined please email or telephone Mark Taylor Support Ltd on 07512 213521.
