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, have more time time and less hassle in your day to day life, want help with effective communication, and developing positive and healthy relationships then Life Skills is for you.

Taking the form of an eight-week daytime course in a relaxed atmosphere, and there’s a free lunch provided.

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. Debbie said ‘It’s scary – you can’t afford to live day by day. Where is the extra money coming from?’ Debbie was taking part in a Life Skills class run by Christians Against Poverty. All of those in the class used prepayment meters and were in receipt of food parcels.
