Effective person-centred transition planning is essential to help young people and their families prepare for adulthood. (The Care Act 2014 Guidance, Paragraph 16.1)
Slough Multi Agency Protocol for Transition from Childhood to Adulthood Protocol sets out the commitment of all agencies: Slough Borough Council, Slough Children’s Services (SCS) Trust, Health and partner agencies to young people whose significant needs suggest that they will require support services for their care, health or education in adulthood.
The Protocol aims to facilitate partnership working between agencies to ensure the process of transition is seamless. It is important that the process is timely, meets the needs of the young person and their family and that the young person is central to the process and remains involved and informed throughout. The Protocol also seeks to ensure that all the agencies working with the young person are clear about their role and responsibilities, adopt an effective person centred approach, sound professional judgement and a commitment to partnership working.
The protocol is available in the 'Downloads' section.
