Growing up - transitions
As children grow to adulthood they may require support, particularly if they have received support in childhood. Depending on the services provided, transition support will begin from the age of 14 to 25 years, as they receive adult disability services, Probation Services or Leaving care support.
Both SSCB and SSAB are working with local agencies to ensure this transition time is robust and clear to everyone.
