Thinking about Transition (Mencap)

Before a child or young person becomes an adult, they should be supported to think about what they might want to do in adulthood.

This can be anything from building friendships to finding a job or thinking about where they want to live in the future.

It might also help children prepare for making decisions for themselves when they become 16, If they have capacity to do so.

This preparation for adulthood should happen from their earliest years and no later than by Year 9, when they are aged 13 or 14.

Children and young people should be encouraged to set what outcomes they want to achieve in future. These outcomes should be reviewed regularly as someone approaches adulthood.

Young people must also have access to careers advice and advocacy to help them prepare for adulthood.
