What’s TILS+ all about?
We work with young people from all backgrounds. They may be leaving care, leaving school, leaving prison, leaving supported accommodation, going to college or university or just leaving home for the first time and setting up their own home for the first time.
TILS+ courses can be delivered in any way that suits you. Our new modular approach means you can pix and mix whatever you want us to cover from 24 modules. And if it’s not on the list, we can probably still cover it!
We travel to the young people and can secure convenient and welcoming venues as well as deliver in their own home or even by Skype 1-2-1.
Anyone can refer onto our spot-purchase courses below – these are ending at the end of 2018, when we are moving over to a 100% block commissioning of TILS+.
Why would you commission us?
Last course date in 2018!
Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) training courses in The Training Flat. Cost on application.
- 18th – 20th December
1-2-1 five-session TILS courses available in person, in any location or by Skype. Dates to be agreed with the young person. Cost on application.
Our courses are prevention interventions. They are designed to be carried out before a someone moves into their tenancy (or their second tenancy!). This way we don’t just cover lots of really practical and important areas of living independently, but it fires up the brain into planning mode. Young people and people of all ages often recognise for the first time that there’s lots to do and only one person that can do it! It complements other support from other professionals as well as family. Getting ready to live independently doesn’t happen overnight!
We do all the arrangements – you just tell us the modules you want and we do the rest. We book the venues, the refreshments, any speakers, ‘peer experts’, manage the risk assessments, create the resources, communicate with the young people and devise their engagement packs. The packs include added extras such as money skills worksheets, budgeting booklets, USBs of information, details of where to go for help and the acclaimed ‘On the Money’ resource.
Does it work?

Retention on our TILS courses nudges 100%! This is because of how we work and how we treat and engage all people as our equals from the outset.
