Transitions of Children and Young People with Disabilities to Adulthood

The Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership oversees a number of Northern Ireland wide sub-groups established to take forward integrated planning on a Northern Ireland wide basis, including a regional sub-group on Transition. This group will focus in the first instance on the transition of disabled young people to adulthood.

Statutory agencies have specific duties to promote the welfare of children and young people with disabilities, through a number of different pieces of legislation. It is universally agreed that there is a great need for better coordination of supports and services for children and young people with disabilities and their families, but that this has yet to be achieved in Northern Ireland.
