Does your teenager get practical support from your local authority?

Have you been wondering what help they might need when they become an adult?

Do you have questions about when the transition process should start?

Our parent advisers will be on hand in our private Facebook group to answer your queries, covering:

  • Planning for the move to adult social care.
  • Assessments, including assessments for carers and young people ahead of the move.  
  • How local authorities can charge for adult services.
  • Personal budgets and direct payments.
