Today is #WorldYouthSkillsDay2020, where we acknowledge and celebrate the importance of equipping young people with skills ready for life independence.
Hafan Cymru run Young People’s projects across a number of different regions in Wales, providing housing support to young people at risk of homelessness. The support we provide aims to ‘build opportunities for people to live well’ through re-gaining their independence and personally developing.
Over the last few weeks alone, our young clients have engaged with skill developing activities and courses such as:
– Arts & Crafts
– Growing their own vegetables
– Food Safety & Kitchen Hygiene
– Grocery shopping & Cooking on a budget
– Fire Safety in the home
– ‘Get Ready & Move On’ course which gives tenants skills on managing a tenancy
– Managing Money
