Transition to Adulthood Consultation
Bolton Council’s Department of People are reviewing the Transition Offer for Young People in Bolton who have additional/complex needs and as a result will need more support as they move into adulthood.
The consultation requires views from across the borough from parents, carers, young people and professionals. The transition to adulthood starts when a child is aged 14 and planning for their next steps commences. This includes things like where will they go to college, transitioning to adult social care services and adult health services. Also thinking about skills for employment and independence.
Views are needed to inform what Bolton Council do and help them design an effective future transition offer.
There are a number of ways in which you can have your views and those of your young person heard:
There is an online questionnaire for young people to complete – this can be done with support if necessary.
Pupils who attend Rumworth or Firwood will be having a listening event held during school hours.
There is also a listening event for parents and carers and another for young people.
Below are the invites from the council that you can read, click on the image to enlarge the document.
