Transition to adulthood

This topic area is about the new rights to change assessment for young people, young carers and carers of young people in the Care Act.

It looks to underpin continuity in provision until adult services have a plan in place.

At the same time, changes introduced by the Children and Families Act 2014 and  special educational needs (SEN) reform introduce a system of support extending from birth to 25 years of age.

This means there will be a group of young people who will be entitled to support through both pieces of legislation.
