Advice For Adults

We aim to support parents of young adults with additional needs to have access to good and useful information.

The basic principle around ensuring your loved one is receiving the most appropriate support involves identifying their specific needs and agreeing a plan and resources to meet those needs.

Parent and carers views are important and it is always wise to ask for advice early and ensure you are involved in all the decision that affects your child.

These pages offer advice and information about lifelong learning, housing, health and employment.
