At Life Skills, we know education has the power to change behaviour. That is why we believe all young people should have access to the tools they need to grow and thrive.


We aim to do this by:

  • Developing and delivering a suite of programmes that use our SKILL Decision-Making Model, a tool to help young people think about their choices and the consequences they have on themselves and others.
  • Empowering young people with the confidence to open up meaningful conversations around tricky subjects with their parents, schools and broader support networks.
  • Creating more resilient communities with improved health outcomes by reducing the effects of substance misuse on people and shared spaces.  


Young people are at the heart of what we do, and our aim is for every child to be less affected by the dangers around the misuse of drugs, alcohol, knife and hate crimes.  

They tell us they have far more confidence to make well-informed, less risky decisions, speak up about issues affecting them and know where to find help.

We want to build upon these skills every year and remain committed to offering a wide range of resources to aid all young people; aged 6 through to 16 years old.

The SKILL Decision-Making Model

Our unique SKILL DECISION-MAKING MODEL teaches young people to make safe and healthy choices by working through problems and issues one step at a time.  It teaches young people to consider various options, balance risk against consequences, manage stress and resist pressure.   These are all critical tools in ensuring they develop into positive and proactive young adults who can adapt to life’s challenges.  At the core of this is young people realising the risk to themselves and others, especially around their physical and emotional health.
