Preparing for Adulthood: Supporting Disabled Young People
Wed 26 April 2017, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
One of the biggest concerns for parents of disabled young people who are about to pass 18, is the move to adult services. Sometimes it goes smoothly, but often it ends up being very difficult with vital support being lost along the way.
This workshop, led by Independent Support Co-ordinator Karen Caldbeck, will focus on the four adult outcomes set out in The Care Act 2014: good health, finding a job, finding somewhere to live and community inclusion.
Ultimately young people want to have full lives with choices about their future and control of their support. This workshop is a step towards empowering parents and young people to achieve this.
