Skills4Living Pan Wales - North and Mid

Skills for Living is a psychosocial skills building intervention for young people leaving care aged between 16 and 24.

We provide a therapeutic intervention based on Dialectical behaviour Therapy (DBT) to improve the emotional and social well-being of young people leaving care.

Specifically, we aim to support young people in developing skills in the following key areas:

  • Mindfulness skills
  • Emotional regulation skills
  • Distress tolerance
  • Interpersonal effectiveness skills

The interventions provided by the Skills for Living team will be extended to significant others and carers.

The service is for young people who experience significant distress and relationship difficulties, who struggle to maintain consistency and who may not be fulfilling their potential.

We also focus on employability. Together, we will be working to give young people the practical and life skills to enable them to transition into happy, healthy adults. The partnership with Llamau has already got off to a great start.
