Learning2Live is a partnership programme which brings together learning and a place to live.

In response to a need for more options for young people with learning disabilities in their transition from school to adulthood, our Learning2Live programme is an alternative to a residential college and takes learning a step further by equipping young people with the skills to live independently.

The programme focuses on achieving independence within three broad areas of “managing a home”, “managing oneself” and “engaging in the community” and brings together a partnership of specialist providers in supported living, learning and specialist employment.

The aim for Learners is to complete a three year programme after which they aspire to live as independently as possible; engaging with their local community through work and activities.
