Assert Courses

Assert provide 3 free courses and 3 short courses

Our courses aim to provide those accessing the service with opportunities to explore their strengths, get more involved and confident in the wider community, and utilise the services that Assert offer. The ultimate goal of each course is for people to experience an increase in their well-being. It’s also an opportunity to explore areas of difficulty and address a range of problems that some people may face. By identifying the tools and strategies that work for them as individuals, students learn to take control and increase their independence.

Before enrolling on any of the courses, students are asked to come for an informal interview to get to know the tutor, become comfortable with the environment and learn more about the course. This enables the tutor and student to know if it is the right course for them.

In additional to our courses, we also provide a range of wellbeing activities which are all part of the Life Skills project. These include cookery sessions, regular wellbeing walking groups and mindfulness and meditation sessions.

Information on each of our courses and also our wellbeing activities can be found by clicking on links at the top of this page.
