Going it alone

Coram knows that going it alone can be a daunting as well as exciting prospect for young people.

 Coram Life in Your Hands coverOur Life in Your Hands booklet is aimed at helping you make as smooth a transition as possible to living independently.

It was produced with the help of young people using Coram’s former Supported Housing service, and covers all the basics like setting up home, health, diet and exercise, education and employment and training.

Sections also focus on the sometimes thorny issues of family, friends and relationships, money and your rights.

These booklet chapters are designed to be handy, bite-sized guides. Keep the ones that are most relevant to you.
