Improving transitions

Improving the transition from child to adult services for young people with learning disabilities

This project aims to improve the transition from child to adult services for young people with learning disabilities in Lambeth, and to improve referrals between services working with young adults. 

There is currently a lack of good information about what the transition process involves and what services are available. Young people and families feel unsure about how to navigate the process and how to seek help. With Maudsley Charity funding, workers will be employed to offer direct support for transitions, improve the information available, and improve pathways between services, thereby improving quality of life and reducing distress and carer burnout at this important time.
