Introduction to preparing for adulthood

Young people with SEND tell us that the four life outcomes that are important to them are:

  • paid employment (including self employment)
  • good health
  • independent living (choice and control over their life and good housing options)
  • community inclusion (friends, relationships and community)  

We will work together with you, your family and other people involved in your support from an early age to help you achieve successful long term outcomes, such as gaining skills to live independently. 

When your are 14 years old we will focus more on these outcomes as you start to work out what you want to do with the rest of your life.
