Joint Health, Social Care and Education Transitions Strategy Refresh 2022-2024

Over the last 3 years partners across health and social care have worked together to deliver the key priorities and actions as set out in the original Joint Health, Social Care and Education Transitions Strategy 2019 to 2022.

The delivery of the strategy and action has improved the outcomes for our young people, especially those with special educational needs and disabilities and our children who are looked after, as they transition from childhood to adulthood.

However, we still have more work to do to ensure the transition for young people and families is a smooth and supported time. Our strategy refresh will focus on a range of actions for the next two years, remaining with a focus of our 3 aims of Integrated service, Effective planning, Informed choices whilst also working closely with our partners.

Our refreshed Strategy will also link to a wider Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland transitions strategy which is currently in development and will eventually become the overarching plan, which will ensure that services across these areas meet the needs for our young people.

We want to make sure our priority areas and actions going forward reflect what you think we should be concentrating on. We are also keen to hear from young people and Parents/ Carers of their experiences as the young person prepared to move from children to adult services. This will help us to hear personal experiences and identify any gaps in provision or processes to ensure this is a smooth and supported time as a young person moves into adult services.
