Edinburgh Transform Through Transitions

Transform Through Transitions delivers online independent living skills and self-care workshops for people in Link’s Private Sector Leasing (PSL) properties over the age of 16 in Edinburgh. The workshops aim to provide people with the tools to better understand their mental health and wellbeing, and to gain the skills they need to help them sustain their tenancies.

What do we do

The Mental health workshops help people develop the skills to recognise and understand the challenges they face. Project Workers support participants to develop positive behaviours and teach them self-help techniques to cope with managing day to day life.

Through the Independent living skills workshops, participants can better understand how to maintain their tenancy, learn practical skills to make the most of their home, and recognise where to go for support.

Online workshops are a great way to increase confidence and meet new people. Each session will include links for additional resources and follow up 1:1 support.

Workshops will run throughout the year and be delivered via Microsoft Teams. Support to access a suitable device can be provided. People are encouraged to attend as many or as few of the workshops as they wish.
