Transition support.

What is the transition support service?

Our transition support service is a free service for young autistic people aged 14 years plus and their parents or carers, looking for information and advice on the transition to adulthood. This includes young people preparing to leave school as well as further and higher education.

What help is available?

  • Confidential information and advice by phone and email.
  • An explanation of rights and entitlements throughout the transition process.
  • Assistance with exploring options so that informed decisions can be made.
  • Information about other services that may be useful during the transition process
  • Guidance and support on specific issues such as engaging the young person, finding suitable provision, making a complaint or appealing against a decision.
