There are many people who can support your young person in their transition to adult life; you as a parent, teachers and social workers.
If more specialist help is required, it may be appropriate for the Preparing for Adult Life (PfAL) service to work with your young person.
Referrals can be made to the PfAL team if:
If your young person with SEND is 14-17-years-old, you should ask their allocated social worker to make the referral. Alternatively, a referral can be made by anyone by ringing the Children’s Advice and Duty Service (CADS) Professionals Referral Line, or in the case of members of the public, call 0344 800 8020.
If your young person is 18-years-old and older, referrals should be made to adult social services.
