SEND Local Offer - Preparing for Adulthood
This section of the SEND Local Offer provides information for young people transitioning to adulthood. At this stage young people may be looking forward to becoming more independent, and need to make big or more complicated decisions about their lives and future. It is therefore important to be aware of 'supported decision making' under the Children and Families Act 2014 and the ability of a young person to make decisions must also be considered under the Mental Capacity Act 2005, as this underpins everything within this section.
For more information on supported decision making and the Mental Capacity Act please see the Advocacy, Advice and Information section below.
