Making choices moving in to adulthood

Many young people face big changes when they leave school. But for some people with SEND, their physical or emotional needs can make moving into adulthood more challenging.

There's help and support available locally, online and nationally to help young people with SEND achieve employment, independent living, good health, friendships and community inclusion.
