This course will focus on the voice of young people and their families to explore their needs as they transition into adulthood.

This training is suitable for practitioners from health, education, children’s, young peoples’ and adults’ social care teams across the voluntary and statutory sectors.

  • Challenges in young peoples’ experiences.

  • Learning from recent research.
  • The issues of collaborations across children and adults’ services and across disciplines.
