Transition from children's to adult services - early and comprehensive identification

Part of Care Act 2014

This resource explains how local authorities can ensure early and comprehensive identification of children, children’s carers and young carers where there is a likely need for care and support after the child in question turns 18 and a transition assessment would be of ‘significant benefit’. It also examines what some authorities are doing in practice and considers some of the principles behind that practice which align with the Care Act 2014, including: co-production and power-sharing; building good relationships with young people and their families; engaging with black and minority ethnic families; proactive early identification; integrated IT systems; and joined-up thinking. It looks at mental health transitions and transition from youth justice and includes a checklist for the identification of seldom heard groups. The Hampshire, Newham and Stoke-on-Trent practice examples set out in detail the approaches to identification and transition in three councils.
