Information for young people and their parents.
As a young person approaching adulthood it can be a difficult time for anyone, but it can be more difficult if you have a disability or long term condition. There will be a lot of things you need to start thinking about such as:
We want to provide young people who have a disability, long term condition or other support need, with a plan for what it is you want to do when you're an adult. We want to help you to develop the skills you need and help you to feel more in control and confident to ask for the right support you need from those around you. This may be at home, school or college, or in the work place. We want to help you to make the most of the opportunities available to you.
We will provide you and your family the opportunity to plan for your future, promoting your independence as much as possible.
Transition is a term used for the change for young people as they progress from support received through Children's Social Care.
We are currently developing our new Transitions Pathway, which will focus on working with you and other people involved in your care and support. As part of the transition pathway an assessment will be completed which will detail the transition to adult services plan. It will include outcomes, views and wishes that matter to you.
The assessment will also decide if you're eligible for care and support from adult services. Care services are free for children, but most adults have to pay something towards the cost of care services. Find out more on our paying for care page.
If you, your parent or guardian would like to help develop the new Transition Pathway, please get in touch with us.
