Social Skills Workshops
The aim of our workshops is to develop social skills through enjoyable activities based on topics the members have chosen. We work with our members to develop their ability to manage emotions, to initiate and maintain conversation with others, and to develop confidence.
Through being around others, individuals’ social tolerance (tolerance of others and their differences) is also developed; a skill which is key to future development in areas such as employment. Click on the link above to see our workshop timetable.
Our employment department has a variety of workshops and courses. These workshops can help with skills in the workplace, CV writing, interview role-plays, and helping with mental well-being. For more information, please email the employment team: email@example.com, or give them a call: 01274 026 556
Our counselling service is available in Leeds on Monday and Friday, with our counsellor, Carol. Counselling is £55 and can be self-funded or funded through the Clinical Commissioning Groups via a visit to the GP. Unfortunately, there is currently an 8-10 month waiting list for this part of our service in person. The wait-list should be shorter if delivered over Zoom. Click on the Referral Forms link above to download a form.
If you think that our Leeds service sounds like something you or your client may be interested in, please contact us to do an initial visit to service where we can discuss your needs and book a trial session in one of the workshops.
