The Real Life Training programme supports individuals to build sustainable networks of support so that they are fully embedded in their local community which is in keeping with New Directions' vision of ambitious change for services "that will depend on and benefit from an acceleration of the policy of mainstreaming that is a core part of the National Disability Strategy".
