Learning For Life

Learning for Life provides education, training and personal development opportunities that promote choice, control and equality. We work with disabled people, and carers including lone parents, who are aged 18 plus and living within Swindon and Wiltshire.

Our aims:

We help individuals to achieve their goals by:
• Encouraging life long learning that is person centred and geared to the needs of the individual
• Supporting individuals into employment, voluntary work and job tasters
• Offering one to one counselling and advice for people who need emotional or additional support

We believe in:
• Helping individuals find their own path/voice so they are able to live a more effective and fulfilling life.
• Empowering individuals to grow holistically whilst maintaining their safety and control over their own future.
• Challenging negative and repeated patterns and scripts to help prevent them becoming self fulfilling prophecies.
• Supporting individuals in reconnecting with their own feelings and inner strengths, and to advocate their own rights in the face of uncertainty and authority figures

Who we work with:
• Disabled people - with mental health problems, emotional problems, learning difficulties and physical disabilities.
• Individuals who have experienced sexual abuse and domestic violence.
• Homeless people and those addicted to drugs and alcohol.
• Veterans and their families. • Carers including lone parents.
