Young people moving from children’s social care to adult social care services should never lose support during the move. A young person should continue to receive social care from children’s services, even after they are 18, until adult services are put in place to make sure that there is no gap.
How we support young people who don't meet eligibility criteria
We will still provide information and advice on other support that may be available. This is called ‘signposting’. Preparing for adult life (PfAL) includes information about many organisations which provide care and support.
Transforming care navigators are part of Improving Lives Together. They work with children and young people with autism and/or a learning disability, who are patients in a mental health hospital or likely to be admitted to one.
