Description

Expression Where It Counts 2018 Conference

‘Stop rushing us. When we’re 17 years old, most of us have no idea what on earth we want to do with our lives…. I felt like an absolute failure because I wasn’t even sure what to do.’
(Facing the Future Together 2017)

Expression Where It Counts provides a unique opportunity for professionals to hear directly from young people, and their parents and carers about their personal experiences of making the transition from school to young adult life.

This conference is aimed at those responsible for strategic planning and policy making that impact on young people who need additional support and those who care for them. This includes professionals from health, education, further education, employment, welfare, elected members and Scottish Government representatives.

This essential and innovative day will explore the difference effective transition planning and support can make, creative activities that produce positive change, and the role you can play to support young people and their families at this critical time.




Expression Where It Counts will have workshops, presentations, art work, discussion and performance from young people and their parents and carers focussed on five main themes drawn from Principles of Good Transitons 3 (2017) and The Facing Th eFuture Together Report (2017):

  • Effective planning

  • Coordinated support

  • The right support I need

  • The right information at the right time

  • The impact of transitions on Families and Carers

  • Accountability: taking charge of transition

Updates will be available here as presentations and workshops are finalised.

The event is organised by ARC Scotland’s Scottish Transitions Forum in partnership with its network of stake holders and the young people they work alongside.
