PIW’s work with younger adults to enable them to foster and maintain independence in all areas of their lives such as daily living skills, social inclusion, travel training and work/education opportunities. PIW’s use a strengths based approach to enable service users to build on existing skills to develop independence and achieve goals in a safe and measured way using graded techniques such as with travel training.
