Barclays Life Skills Sessions

Family Action is delighted to have been awarded funding from Barclays to deliver a LifeSkills Holiday Hub programme to support families outside of term time. The sessions will offer free LifeSkills workshops for parents and carers to build their confidence, social networks, financial and employability skills.

Please see the Hodge Hill Flyer for the start date, time, venue and how to register.

The LifeSkills workshops will use a coaching-based approach, in which parents and carers are supported to focus on their individual strengths and needs, to consider their options and to think differently – helping them to feel more empowered and able to face new challenges. They will be able to select modules (listed below) that they will find most useful and these will be delivered by CC’s as weekly sessions:

  • Becoming confident with your communication skills.
  • Becoming financially responsible.
  • Boosting your problem-solving skills.
  • How to save more money.
  • Managing your debt.
  • Taking control of your income.
