The LIFE Course

The LIFE course seeks to help clients who are in recovery to develop resilience through the development of practical life skills. The course aims to increase self-care, improve mental well-being, develop healthy relationships and help clients take steps towards sustainable independent living with meaningful activity.
Apply online or download an application form to register for the course. 
Or, if you're referring someone, complete a risk assessment form online  or download one here.
What we do
The course contains four modules, each one lasting two weeks. The modules run on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1.30pm - 3.30pm.
  • Module 1: Self Care
  • Module 2: Mind Matter
  • Module 3: Healthy Relationship
  • Module 4: Life Management

The course is an abstinence-focused life skills programme aimed at adults (ages 25+) who are in early recovery and have completed a treatment programme. We will accept those who are reducing on a script.

This course is for those who:

  • lack confidence and life skills
  • have been homeless
  • have been in active addiction
  • suffer from mental health problems
  • have a criminal record
  • have been long term under-employed

BUT who want to make life changes and improve their lives.

Essential Information

  • Each module supports a maximum class size of 12 and is offered free of charge.
  • Students are expected to attend the whole course; they cannot pick and choose sessions or modules.
  • Students will need to enrol before the course starts; it is important that a group begins and completes the course together, so students cannot join half way through.
  • Students can self refer although it is preferred that your application is supported by a referral.
The next course will run from 4th October to 17th December 2019.

Applicants: Apply online or download an application form to register for the course.

Referrers: Complete a risk assessment form online  or download one here.
