Young people in transition

Young people in transition

The Shared Lives transitions offer enables younger people to use Shared Lives before they become eligible for adult social care at 18 years old. As well as supporting Shared Lives schemes with information and advice, the Transitions Development Officer works to influence children’s services commissioners to consider using Shared Lives as an alternative for short breaks, respite planning and day opportunities for young people from 15 to 18 years old.

We are working to get the message about opportunities in transitions out to schemes and to expand the work nationally, raising awareness in national children’s fora and working with partners to provide more choice for young people.
