SEND 16+ Transition Guide

SEND 16+ Transition Guide

The new 16+ Transitions Guide is a key priority in Suffolk’s SEND Strategy for 2017-2020. Gordon Jones, Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Education and Skills, said: “This guide will help youngsters with SEND and their families by building confidence and making the journey towards greater independence and adulthood a positive experience.’

Suffolk County Council and CCG’s have produced the guide in conjunction with Suffolk Parent Carer Network and the SEND Young Persons’ Network.

Kate Chate of the Suffolk Parent Carer Network (SPCN) said: “This new guide is a great way for everyone involved in SEND to support young people with good, timely, consistent information on their journey into adulthood.”

A digital copy of the guide can be downloaded from the Suffolk Local Offer website on the Preparing for Adulthood and Employment page or by searching for SEND 16+ Transitions Guide.
