Independent Living Centre
The Independent Living Centre at Brierley Hill is a dedicated facility to support students with a disability or special educational needs. It allows them to develop their independence in a range of social settings while preparing them for adulthood and the world of work. The Independent Living Centre includes a living unit with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. These will enable students to gain a range of skills including budgeting, planning menus for a healthy lifestyle and carrying out home maintenance.
Classroom areas are available for students to develop enterprise and employability skills as part of their education and vocational training. A quiet room also allows students to work independently or receive one-to-one guidance on careers, employment opportunities or any other support they require.
Development of the centre was made possible through a £540,000 investment from Dudley Council in 2015.
