Preparing for Adulthood

You will find information here related to finding training and employment, living independently and becoming involved in your community and support available as you move from services for children and young people to services for adults.

Many of the support services you may need as an adult with a disability or special educational need can be found within the Orb.  This is where we display details of services available to any adult who needs extra support.

A useful pilot booklet called: Preparing for Adulthood: Pathways for young people with special educational needs and/or a disability with an Education, Health and Care Plan can be viewed by visiting

If you are unable to find the support you need here please contact the Family Information Service on 0800 328 5974 or or the Disability Information Service on 01803 546474.
