Transition from children’s to adults’ services: video diaries

Part of Care Act 2014

This resource brings together five video diaries where six young carers share their personal experiences of caring for a sibling or parent. It is one of a range of resources developed by SCIE to help local authority staff, social workers, young people and carers to plan for the transition to adult care services within the provisions of the Care Act 2014.

Adult carer transition in practice under the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

The resource explores how the provisions in the Care Act around transition can be put into practice for adult carers as the young person they care for moves into adulthood. This can be a difficult time for adult carers, because the young person they care for will often be leaving full-time education and require very different care and support as an adult building an independent life. Adult carers have in the past had to give up full-time work in order to provide more support. The Care Act places a duty on local authorities to assess adult carers before the child they care for turns 18, so that they have the information they need to plan for their future. This is referred to as a transition assessment. This resource brings together useful publications, practice examples and a process map with suggestions on how to put the stages into action.

Young carer transition in practice under the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

This resource explores how the provisions in the Care Act around transition can be put into practice for young carers moving from children’s to adult services to ensure that they are appropriately supported and encouraged to fulfil their education and employment potential. One young carer’s journey through transition (Emma’s story) will provide an example of how several services worked together to support her into adulthood. The resource covers: transition in the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014; identifying support needs of young carers; timing of a transition assessment; transition assessments under the Care Act 2014; approaches to assessments; information and advice; transition planning; transition of young carers; practice examples, describing young carers’ journeys through transition; and a process map with suggestions on how to put the stages into action.

The road ahead?: information for young people with learning difficulties, their families and supporters at transition

This report for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) brings together the findings from three inter-linked investigations relating to the information needs of young people, their parents and supporters at transition. It was undertaken over a six month period between October 2003 and March 2004 and included: focus group interviews with young people, their parents and supporters; a systematic review of the literature on transition; and a review of the information already available for young people, parents and professionals, including an evaluation of materials by young people and parents. The project was carried out by the Norah Fry Research Centre (NFRC) in partnership with North Somerset People First (NSPF) and the Home Farm Trust (HFT).
