Supporting young people’s transition to adulthood is so important. Let’s get it right first time.
The changes that occur when a young person transitions into adulthood isn’t talked about enough. But it’s one of the most crucial parts of a young person’s life. All of a sudden, there’s new legislation, benefits, accommodation needs and so much more. Ensuring that vulnerable young people have everything they need for a life they’ll enjoy is complicated. Which is why we’ve built a team to make it simple for you.
A happy, fruitful transition starts with a well-informed transition plan.
Creating an individually-tailored transition plan takes a lot of insight. Our team has a wealth of expertise in funding, placements, benefits, the Mental Capacity Act, and fantastic local authority relationships—and it’s all at your disposal. You don’t need to know everything in advance, we’ll make sure you understand everything at every step.
Our priority is to provide the highest quality of life possible. And it always will be.
It’s never too early to get in touch.
There’s no textbook formula for helping young people succeed. So it’s important that we get to know a person, their needs, and their ambitions as soon as possible. That’s where we need your help.
The sooner we talk to you about their transition, the more realistic their ideal future becomes. Some even begin planning as early as 15. But whichever part of the journey a young person is currently at, we’re here to help them make the most of their post-school future and support them every step of the way.
This work is so important to us. We can’t wait to start, and that begins with your call. Contact us today at EvolvingFutures@ofgl.co.uk.
Here to make the difficult things easy.
Here’s some of the important things to consider when a young person is moving into adulthood:
- Health assessments
- Finance assessments
- Mental Capacity Act 2005
- Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
- Power of Attorney/Appointee status
- Benefit access
- Work placements
If there’s any part of the process you’re unsure about, get in touch. We’ll help everything make sense.
