  • Develop your skills, including reading, writing, maths and employability.
  • Learn about computers, particularly how to use services.
  • Teach reading and writing to your children.
  • If you are struggling with a mental health issue - this is usually done in partnership with the Psychological Therapies team or other local services.
  • If you are struggling with bereavement or loss.
  • Get a job, through work clubs or support.
