Transitions to adulthood strategy: statement of intent - easy read

Easy read version of the statement of intent summarises research and engagement to date on Scotland’s first National Transitions to Adulthood Strategy, and sets out what the Scottish Government has heard it should focus on in order to improve experiences of transitions for Scotland’s disabled young people.

Why we need a strategy

We have heard that disabled young people’s experiences of the transition can include:

  • stress and uncertainty
  • difficulties moving from child to adult services
  • Changes in eligibility for services and support
  • A sharp drop in support
  • Not enough planning or clear information about transitions
  • lack of communication between services
  • young people not being listened to
  • stress for the family members.

We want to make the transitions journey better for every disabled young person.
