Local Offer: preparing for adulthood

Moving from Children's Services to Adult Social Care can be challenging for young people with SEND.

If you're aged between 14 and 25 you can use this section to find out what happens when you move. There's also information to help you become more independent, confident and aware of your choices. This is sometimes called transitions.

You may be offered a transitions assessment if you're eligible.  Find out what happens when you move.

Find out about how to prepare for your transitions assessment meeting in our easy-read factsheet.
