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).
The purpose of this guide is to support commissioners and providers of social care services to work effectively with refugees and asylum seekers.
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.
