SEND Information and services for Young People and Preparing for Adulthood (PfA)

Welcome to our pages on Preparing for Adulthood (also known as Transition) for young people aged 13 to 25 with a disability or specific need. Transition is the journey of preparing, planning and moving from being a teenager to becoming an adult if you have a disability, specific need or an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.

Children with special educations needs and disabilities (SEND), who are eligible for social care support, receive it from Children's services. Once you reach 18, you become an adult and support is then provided by social care services designed for adults. You can find a "Jargon Buster " explaining what words and phrases used at the bottom of this page.
