Transition support for young people with complex, ongoing needs

How the transition team supports young people with complex, ongoing needs.

Seaside View girl with waterballoonYoung people who have more complex needs and disabilities and who may need ongoing support from adult social care will be given support from the Transition Team. The Transition Team provides support and guidance to parents and young disabled people between the ages of 14 and 25 years. The team is part of the Children's Disability Service. 

This service is in addition to support available for all young people with a statement of special educational needs. 

How does the Transition Team work?

Usually a transition worker from this team will be allocated to a family with a young person who will need a complex support package.  If you are already receiving support from the Children's Disability Service, transition planning may be led by your allocated social worker.

Young people who don’t have existing support from the Children’s Disability Service will be supported by an Learning Difficulties / Disabilities (LDD) adviser who are part of the council’s special educational needs (SEN) team.

A panel run by children's and adult services has to agree all recommendations for services that are being requested from adult social care.
