Easy read summary report on analysis of feedback received on the National Transitions to Adulthood Strategy: statement of intent.

Question 4: Are the priorities the right ones for the strategy?

Almost all people agreed with the priorities for the strategy. Only a very small number of people disagreed.

When asked to explain their answers, some people felt:

The priorities in the statement of intent could only happen if there were enough services and support for young people.

Early transitions planning is important. All the people who will support the young person through their transition should be involved.

Clear and accessible information is important. It should be easy to find and easy to understand.

There should be good support and communication across all services. We also need to think about support for parents and carers, and young people who are home educated.

Everyone who needs it should get support for transitions across Scotland.

There should be access to training on transitions.

There needs to be a way to measure how the strategy is making transitions better for young people. This is important to make sure young people are supported.

Young people’s rights are important.

Independent advocacy is important for young people who need extra help to have their voices heard and rights protected.

There should be better options and support for disabled young people after they leave school.
