Promoting Independence

The Promoting Independence project aims to respond to the needs and aspirations of young people between the ages of 16 and 25, who have profound or complex needs. Through bringing together schools ,colleges and providers working with young people and adults with special needs, it aims to support people to become as independent as possible, make a smooth transition from formal education into their adult lives and reduce their long term dependency on Adult Care and support.

Information and support can be made available to help young adults make choices about what they want to do in the future with regard to getting a job, taking part in voluntary work, finding day opportunities, taking part in activities, exploring opportunities for more independent living and staying healthy and happy.

Young adults and their parents or carers can be supported to find out about eligibility for adult care and support, personal budgets, direct payments and community supported living.
