Steps to prepare for adult life (PfAL)

Formal assessments

From age 16-17–years-old, your young person will have formal assessments to understand what needs they will have as an adult. These assessments will consider how adult services in health, education, social care and other services can support your young person to meet their needs.

In Norfolk, the preparing for adult life (PfAL) service is responsible for carrying out transition Care Act assessments. This is to determine if your young person will need support after the age of 18 from adult social services. If your young person is eligible, a care and support plan will be made to ensure there are no gaps in the help your young person receives.
