About the Programme

The Targeted Life Sills service provides Life Skills Training (LST), based on recent research, which teaches how simply telling young people the dangers of alcohol and drugs is not enough to stop this risk taking behavior. LST provides young people with the opportunity to look at their life holistically - by doing this it enables the problem of substance abuse to be address at many levels. During the programme the young people enhance their health information, general life skills and drug resistance skills.

The service is offer to young people age 11-13yrs, 14-15yrs and 16-21yrs and is delivered in a group setting. There has to be a minimum of four sessions delivered, up to a maximum of eight.

There has been great feedback from service users who have said that they really enjoyed the programme and gained some valuable knowledge that they were able to implement into their day to day lives.
