Service User Training Programmes

As Lifeware programmes were designed originally for the Staff and Service Users within the Substance Misuses Sector, the subject matter of the courses reflect the three overarching principles of HM Government 2010 Drug Strategy: Recovery, Citizenship and Well-being. However, the courses are found to be valuable with any professionals who work to support people and clients with multiple barriers to learning and employment.

Lifeware offers a suite of courses that can help those who have multiple barriers to employment.            Lifeware courses are delivered within the community, meaning value for money. This service works in partnership with local colleges delivering a suite of accredited courses at treatment provider premises or agencies working with clients from the mental health or criminal justice sector.
