I'm bored and want something to do

Are you bored and wanting something to do? Or do you want to learn something new?

We have activities available that can support your wellbeing as well as loads of learning opportunities – because of the pandemic most of this is 1:1 or in very small groups

Some of the things we are doing at the moment are
  • A short tenancy course – this is a really useful qualification to get especially if you are bidding for housing
  • Budgeting skills – this is great if you are struggling to manage your money as you get lots of tips and advice
  • English and maths functional skills – definitely recomended if you didn’t get good grades at school
  • One day First Aid courses – great for the CV and very useful for lots of jobs
  • CSCS training – the way into construction industry jobs
  • We will also help you access sports, music or arts activities if you want something more informal
  • We also have loads of resources you can access via our You Tube channel that will give you things to do from home. Here are the links to the Youtube channel playlists

If there is something else you would like to do – let us know and we will try to help – email
