Get ready for adult life
How to find training courses, internships, apprenticeships, volunteering opportunities, jobs, a place to live and where to get support.
How we'll support you
If you have an education, health and care (EHC) plan your school and people who support you will help you prepare for adult life.
When you become 18 years old, the support you get from our children’s social care services will be provided by adult social care services instead.
Our services will work together to make the change from teenager to an adult as easy as possible. We’ll support you so that you can:
- find a course at your secondary school or sixth form college
- find an internship, apprenticeship and volunteering opportunity
- find a place to live
- find a job
- live independently
- stay healthy
- have fun and make friends
Your support plans
If you have an education, health and care (EHC) plan you may also have a Transition Plan put together in year 9 at school, as part of the EHC annual review.
Who to ask for help

- Amaze who provide advice and support for local families with disabled children and young people
- a special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO) or the learning support service at your secondary school, sixth form or college

- your social worker, if you have one
