This is an inspiring and uplifting course that encourages participants to begin to believe in themselves again and take previously unthinkable steps into the unknown to create a better future.

The course encourages participants to take up new hobbies and activities, gain qualifications, learn new skills, undergo training, join social and support groups and become involved in volunteering. These are the primary steps that a person experiencing low-confidence, anxiety and/or depression needs to enable them to start to rebuild their lives.
