We make the transition to adult status a smooth and positive experience

Our organisation prides itself in supporting young people to their chosen destination through a comprehensive transition programme. This could be an internal move from school to college, to our All-Year-Round Adult (residential care 52-weeks a year provision), Landlord Supported Housing (WESC’s own supported living provision) or into the community in another destination of the learner’s choice.

In order to make this process a smooth and positive experience a plan is devised involving the young person, their family, external supporting agencies and, where appropriate, the new provider.

A programme of visits and exchanges into the new environment ensures the young person is fully prepared for their next location. The process facilitates sharing of all information including the care plan, mobility programmes, health issues, and therapy needs.
