This guideline covers the period before, during and after a young person moves from children's to adults' services. It aims to help young people and their carers have a better experience of transition by improving the way it’s planned and carried out. It covers both health and social care.

Who is it for?

  • Health and social care providers
  • Health and social care practitioners in children’s and adult health, mental health and social care services
  • Other practitioners working with young people who use health and social care services, for example those working in education and employment agencies
  • Young people using heath or social care services who may need support from adults’ services in the future, and their parents or carers
