Assert Life Skills Courses

Assert have received funding to facilitate two Life Skills Courses. These will each run twice a year, over a period of 3 years. This project has been developed from feedback from our members and the areas of support that they would like. We have now recruited a new member of staff, Catherine, to facilitate these courses. She will be starting at Assert in mid-March. The group will meet twice per month. There will be 11 sessions based in Community Base. This will be followed by three activity sessions, chosen by participants.
All participants will also be offered 1.5 one to one support each month. You can choose to do either course, or can start with one and then go onto do course two. There will also be a walking group once per fortnight, this will most likely take place on a Saturday or


Course one: Communication, anxiety and Relationships.
