  • manage money, pay bills and develop budgeting skills
  • understand and gain access to benefits
  • find and register with a GP and other help services
  • access practical, social and emotional support
  • access treatment services for alcohol, drug or health problems
  • maintain a tenancy
  • stay in touch with family and friends, or develop new social skills
  • develop life skills e.g. learning to cook
