Social care into adulthood
This section aims to help young people moving into adulthood learn more about their adult social care options.
If your child has a disability and/or additional needs, they may already have a social worker before their 16th birthday. If this is the case, then their social worker will be involved in helping plan their transition to adulthood.
Adult social care is available to young adults aged 18+ who are ready to transition from children's social care.
