Preparing for Adulthood launches new online forum

Preparing for Adulthood has launched an online forum to enable those working with children and families to discuss the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms.

Each week, they will be discussing an element of the SEND reforms and considering how these interact with the reforms to create a positive outcome for young people with SEN and disabilities.

The aim of the forum is to support developing process and plans in local areas by helping you with the specific challenges you face related to each element of the SEND reforms. It is also an opportunity to raise questions and address some of the challenges you are experiencing with responses from regional champions, experts in the sector and the Preparing for Adulthood team.

Preparing for Adulthood is funded by the Department for Education as part of the delivery support for the SEN and disability reforms. The Preparing for Adulthood programme is delivered by a partnership between the National Development Team for inclusion and the Council for Disabled Children.

The partnership brings together a wide range of expertise and experience of working with young people and families, at a local and national level and across government, to support young people into adulthood with paid employment, good health, independent living and friends, relationships and community inclusion.

You can read more about Preparing for Adulthood and their work from their website.
