Effective person-centred transition planning is essential to help young people and their families prepare for adulthood.  Transition to adult care and support comes at a time when a lot of change can take place in a young person’s life.  It can also mean changes to the care and support they receive from education, health and social care or involvement with new agencies, like housing and further education.

Following a development workshop event held on the 28th September 2015 and taking into consideration the views shared during the workshop from parents/cares and professionals the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group and Local Authority have developed a draft transitions protocol.

The aim of this protocol is to clarify the role of each agency to simplify and promote better understanding of the processes involved in accessing support leading up to and during transition from children to adult services

Consultation Activity

We are seeking your views on the draft transition protocol under the headings of:

Principles, Roles, Responsibilities and Local Provision:

  • Does the Transitions protocol make sense?
  • Is there anything you feel is missing from the Transitions Protocol?

Transition Planning Framework

  • Should a parents section be included within Section 8?
  • Does it include all the relevant organisations?
  • Do you think the framework will work in principle?

Outcome of the consultation

We had nine electronic responses which were all positive.

We also held a transition event at the Riverside in March 2016 with over 50 people attending including young people.

The feedback has been collated and an updated document is being produced. 

The main points were :  

  • We need to make some reference to support for young people in the youth justice system
  • We need to define the role of the voluntary sector
  • We need a section within the framework for children who are home educated/NEET. 
  • Also we need to add a parents section within the framework
