Preparing for Adulthood

Transition is an exciting time when a young person leaves childhood behind and moves into the world of adulthood.  Transition is now often called preparing for adulthood.


For some young people this may affect the types of healthcare they have been used to or the kinds of social care and support which is familiar to them.


Transition takes place between the ages of 14 to 25 and to make this as smooth and as successful as possible; we recommend early planning.  The information on this website has been developed to provide young people and their parents and carers with a variety of information to help them through this process.
