Life Skills is a friendly group where you’ll gain practical skills and discover new ways to live for a brighter future.

If you want to see your money go further, find ways to save money, have more time time and less hassle in your day to day life, then Life Skills is for you.

Taking the form of an eight-week course, we start at 10.30 am with refreshments and run through to 12.30 at which point there’s a free lunch for anyone who wants to stay. 

The next Life Skills group meets from Tuesday 27th September 2022 in Cowley. To find out more and book a place contact Helen on 07926 596225 or at

A recent participant said, ‘Life Skills taught me a lot about how to manage my money and how to be financially better off. I would recommend the course.’

Life Skills features in a BBC news item about how to beat rising energy bills. Debbie Wright is about to move into her first flat, but said rising energy bills, as well as lower benefits payments, were detracting from the excitement of her potential independence. “It’s scary – you can’t afford to live day by day,” she said. “Where is the extra money coming from?” She was taking part in a life skills class run by charity Christians Against Poverty. All of those in the class used prepayment meters and were in receipt of food parcels.
