Information for parents of young people in transition to Adult Services

Transition is the process through which young people with a disability move from Children's Services to Adult Services.

The Adult Services Transition Team - Telephone: 01792 614100

The Adult Services Transition Team is the first point of contact. They are part of the Community Support Team, a specialist learning disability team providing a range of support to adults who have a learning disability in Swansea. 

As your child approaches adulthood the Child Disability Team will let the Adult Service Transition Team know about your child and their needs. Depending on the level of need, this can happen as early as age 14 but should happen no later than age 17. More detailed information on this process can be obtained from your social worker.

The Adult Services Transition Team will carry out an assessment of your child's future needs and a care plan will be drawn up which will set out the services to be received and what they will achieve.
