gaining confidence... taking control... making life-changing choices

We work with SAFE to provide the Choices course to help people in our community learn how to take control of their lives.


The Choices course normally runs in our church lounge. Groups are typically made up of 8-12 candidates with 2 trained facilitators, although often other volunteers sit in the group offering support with literacy or general encouragement.


Each day has a mixture of whole group, small group and individual activities. These might include:

  • team-building tasks such as building a LEGO model 
  • small group discussions following a video clip
  • individual questionnaires to discover different strengths
  • whole group thought showers to tackle a problem.

And each week, every candidate has the opportunity to sit down with a facilitator for an individual coaching session to talk more specifically about their personal progress.

On a practical note, we aim to remove any financial barrier that would stop a candidate participating in a course:

Complimentary refreshments and lunch are provided.
