Independence Skills

As part of the BudWood Independence Skills Builder programme our staff will support the young person with acquiring the skills needed for independent living. We know that young people need an attuned environment, one which keeps them regulated and anxious free, in order to start to develop their emotional resilience, problem solving and cognitive learning. It’s paramount therefore that we build these connections with the young person first, through safe relationships, which allows us then to have strong foundations for skills building.

We utilise the training package for young people ‘The Big Initiative’. Each young person is encouraged to complete a set of courses around life skills and emotional wellbeing. Examples include ‘healthy relationships, managing money, effects of substances on health, mental health awareness, as well as job focussed courses on customer service.
