LIVE Promoting Independence

LIVE – Learning, Independence, Volunteering and Employment

LIVE is a new service specifically designed to support people with a disability to live independently and find paid employment or volunteer in the community.

We know that everyone that joins us is an individual and we make sure we spend the time to listen closely to their needs so together we can create a plan that works.

For you the LIVE programme might be a journey, helping you to decide what you want to do and supporting you to build the skills you need to get there, taking each task step by step from increasing your confidence to CV writing.

LIVE (Learning, Independence, Volunteering, Employment)

On the other hand, you might only need the programme to support you to develop a few key areas, like increasing Budgeting or finding the right type of training.

However we help you get there, our goal is to build your skills and help you find a new role so you can be as independent as possible and live your life, your way.
