Independence and independent living
To help you get ready to live as independently as possible, your parents, carers and staff at schools and colleges have taught you many skills.
Things you've tried for yourself, like a hobby or youth club all add to these important experiences. Leicester has many activities to support your personal growth. Search in MyChoice for new things to do.
