Preparing for adulthood

The Preparing for Adulthood programme provides expertise and support to local authorities and their partners to embed preparing for adulthood from the earliest years

The Preparing for Adulthood outcomes are based on what disabled young people say is important to them. Ultimately young people want to have full lives with choices about their future and control of their support.

The Preparing for Adulthood programme has three key strands of work:

  • Development and implementation of good practice through the PfA Demonstration Sites
  • Best practice and information sharing
  • Regional support in relation to all PfA outcomes and partnership working through events and networks

We will be continuing to work with the Department for Education and its partners to ensure that young people with SEND achieve paid employment, independent living and housing options, good health, friendships, relationships and community inclusion as they move into adulthood.

We will continue to:

  • Build on the learning from previous years of the programme
  • Build on the learning from past initiatives
  • Promote peer to peer learning at a local and regional level and support to develop and maintain regional PfA networks
  • Share knowledge of what works, the challenges and solutions with Government, local agencies, families and young people
  • Support engagement across wider government initiatives

As of September 2014, when the Children and Families Act 2014 was introduced, new duties were put in place to ensure that Preparing for Adulthood outcomes focus on person-centred reviews from year 9 onwards.
