Transitions to Adulthood Webinar January 15th 2020

We recognise that transition can be a time of great anxiety, confusion and uncertainty. The WPCC worked in partnership with Wiltshire Council to deliver a series of sessions for parent carers to explore this issue in some depth. As a result of the sessions, parents/carers and young people identified five key areas they felt would make the greatest impact to improve this process.

To move this work forward, Wiltshire is adopting a Whole Life Pathway. Informed by what parent carers told us, the vision is to enable people through all stages of life to reach their potential to live happy, healthy, safe and rewarding lives within their communities regardless of ability.

To deliver the vision, a Draft Multi Agency Preparing for Adulthood and Transition policy and procedure has been written. The feedback from parent carers has been at the heart of informing the principles and guidance outlined in this draft policy and procedure. Aims of the policy include reducing the impact of transition by working in a more integrated way with multi-agency partners, adopting co-production in working with children and young people, and promoting choice and control with shared responsibility and community resilience.

The draft policy and procedure is out for consultation, and comments are welcomed until 24th January 2020. To help parent carers access and understand the draft policy, the WPCC is running a webinar at 10.30am on Wednesday 15th January 2020. This webinar will aim to describe and explain the contents of the policy and invite feedback that will inform the final version.

We invite you to join us on 15th January at 10.30am but if you are not able to join us on the day, you will be able to watch and listen to a recording of the webinar which will be available on the WPCC website after the session has taken place. The webinar will give details of how comments and feedback can be submitted, even if you watch the recording.
