The main goal of our programme is to assist people into independent living, offering support and guidance to carers and tutors, helping them to develop learners’ skills both inside and outside the classroom, with the end goal of helping everyone reach their own personal level of independence.
Jimmy Batilo Songa, Care Quality Commission Registered Manager and Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN), talks about the My Life Programme saying “My Life Programme is a very interesting care model that has helped improve the lives of service users in our care. It has enhanced the social and financial skills of most service users I manage at Approach Lodge.”
He continues, “For example, A male learner came to me and said, “I have built confidence to go in the community all by myself”. This learner attributed the gains he has made to the Confidence Building module of My Life Programme that he completed. Another service user mentions that “I can now manage my own money”. He further said “thanks to the Finance Management module of MY L.I.F.E Programme”. Above all, I believe that My Life Programme helps service users with mental health problems to gain Independent Living skills.”
With more people having access to the tools necessary to learn the life skills required to live independently they can go on to live happier, secure and more enjoyable lives, saving local authorities, councils and care homes significant funding and resources – allowing people to live independently out in the community.
