Getting transitions right from child to adult services (August)
£ 0.00

This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh and Midlothian. 

When: Wednesday 21 August, 10am – 12pm

About the event: 

This is a chance to find out what to expect during transition, along with information, tools and tips that can help when caring for a child with Additional Support Needs (ASN). It’s especially useful if you are caring for someone aged 14-18. 

Transition means change – and for young people with ASN, growing up is one of the biggest changes they face. It’s not just about leaving school, it’s building a life that works, and families and close friends are on the journey too. It can be hard work at times, but preparation and planning really make a difference. This is a chance to find out what to expect, along with information, tools and tips that can help. It’s especially useful if your young person is 14-18, but it’s never too early – or too late – to plan for the future.

Delivered by:
