What is Transition?

Transition is the process by which young people with a disability or additional needs transfer from Child to Adult Services in education, health and social care.

The transition from childhood to adulthood is a crucial time in the life of a young person with a disability or additional needs. The Dyma Ni project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, will provide the right support to parent carers of young people (14+-25) going through this process to make it as easy as possible.

The project will:

provide information and training sessions on all aspects of the process of transition

support you to engage in the planning and delivery of transition and young adult services

create a peer advocacy programme to support you through transition

develop parent carer participation groups
