Preparing for Adulthood

This page provides information on services and opportunities for young people with Special Educational Needs in transition to adulthood.  This includes information from education, health and care at school, colleges and community settings.

Some of the professionals that may now be involved with you/your child will continue to be so with a focus on transition to adulthood and Adult Services from Health and Social Care. There will be an emphasis on planning into the future and building on your child’s many achievements, as well as identifying support that may be needed. See also Independent Advice and support Services.

The Preparing for Adulthood programme (PfA) is funded by the Department for Education as part of the delivery support for the SEN and disability reforms.

The Preparing for Adulthood programme is delivered by a partnership between the National Development Team for inclusion and the Council for Disabled Children.

The partnership brings together a wide range of expertise and experience of working with young people and families, at a local and national level and across government, to support young people into adulthood with paid employment, good health, independent living and friends, relationships and community inclusion.
