Introduction to the London Transition project

The London Joint Improvement Partnership, working with the London ADASS Group, NHS London and London Councils have commissioned a project that has looked at developing and implementing the transition pathway for young people with learning disabilities across London.Section of an ilustration showing a moody teenager

The Housing and Support Alliance, Paradigm, Simon Jarrett Associates and Kaleidoscope Social Enterprise Ltd have worked together this year to do some research and develop some resources to help London commissioners, providers, young people and families to plan the services and the supports they need to live ordinary lives in London.

This work has included:

  • Local and regional information and statistics on young people in transition that tells us the number of people and their level of need and likely impact on local budgets (link to new page ‘Developing the Transition Pathway- Data Analysis Report)
  • Thinking about how we continue to share high expectations for the lives of young people with learning disabilities despite the gloomy economic climate ( link to new page Sharing Expectations)
  • Examples of how young people, families , providers and commissioners are making good things happen despite the difficult times. (link to new page Positive and Possible- a series of case studies)
  • Understanding how the law works in relation to young people in transition (Link to The Law & Transition)
  • Workshops and networking  to share learning. (link to Events & Networking)
  • Transition resources and links
