If you use children’s services, this also describes the move from children’s services to adult services.

Your local social services can give you information about this, the information will come from the Transition Team.

When you are 14yrs people will start to talk to you about what you want to do when you leave school, and grow up. If you have an Education Health and Care Plan, this will start in your Year 9 Preparing for Adulthood Review and continue from there. There will be lots of changes happening in your life over the next few years, some you will be happy with, and some you will be sad about. This is all part of growing up and there are lots of people who can help you get ready and understand the changes.

There is lots of information and the transition team are there to help.
