The transition from child to adult’s social care can be a confusing time.

Yet the right support can make a big difference, Will Oborne, Lifeways’ Community Engagement and Development Manager for the East region, has discovered in his career.

Writing exclusively for Enable, the UK’s leading disability and lifestyle title, Will, who has supported many such transitions, outlines the key steps and things you need to think about when planning a transition for you or a family member.

These steps include:

  • Securing funding from your local authority
  • Finding a placement in a desirable area
  • Buying furniture for your new place
  • Identifying convenient opportunities for employment or education
