Preparing For Adulthood (PFA)/ Transition to Adult services
What is Transition? Something that starts in Year 9 is usually the stock answer! Here we’ll share some useful links and documents that explain what is transition, what it should like and useful information in helping ensure that young people with SEND achieve paid employment, independent living, housing options, good health, friendships, relationships and community inclusion wherever possible.
The Care Act says that if a child, young carer or an adult caring for a child is likely to have needs when they, or the child they care for, turns 18, the local authority must assess them if it considers there is ‘significant benefit’ to the individual in doing so. This is regardless of whether the child or individual currently receives any services. (Source SCIE)
