Transition and EHCP

Transition and Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP)

We currently provide Independent Advocacy to young people 13 -19 years who require support completing their Education Healthcare Plan, or who are about to experience Transition and face all the, sometimes difficult, issues associated with moving into adulthood.

An Advocate will provide a young person with impartial information, and, where required, will ensure the information is easy to understand. The Advocate will support the young person with their preparation and attendance at meetings and will challenge any decisions that could affect the young person’s future. Advocates always act in the young person’s interests and are independent.
