Steps to prepare for adult life (PfAL)

Making applications and referrals

From when your young person is 14-16-years-old, it is important that applications are made for things like places at college. Read our parent and carer guide to planning for college or training. There are also other sources of advice and guidance listed in step two.

It is also important that relevant organisations know about your young person and that they might need some support. This could be:

  • Schools
  • Further education providers
  • Training providers
  • Social care teams
  • Health departments 

Your young person's school or college, guidance adviser, EHC plan coordinator, or preparing for adult life (PfAL) service worker can help you with this. There should be regular reviews to check that progress is being made.
