Transitions to Adulthood Panel
Transitions occur through various stages of a young person’s life from starting primary school, moving to secondary school, preparing for independence and leaving home. Transitions also coincide with physical, emotional, psychological and physiological developments that are coupled with changes to roles and relationships with family, friends, community and professionals.
The Panel meets monthly and considers young people on the
brink of leaving local authority care; those with substance use, or mental health concerns, SEND, young people vulnerable to exploitation and serious youth violence, or youth offending issues. Referrals can begin from the age of 14 years. The Panel produces a multi-agency Transitions Plan for each young person referred.
