Independent Living

An important part of a young person's transition to adulthood and independence is understanding the range of support services that are available to young people with Special Educational Needs and or Disabilities to supporting them to live independently.    

Living independently is a big decision for any young person and this is a period of change for young people with SEND.  This is also an exciting time for every young person as they become more independent and have more choices and increased opportunities. 

This may also be a time of anxiety for some families.  Parents and carers are aware that their child is growing up and there are lots of changes, new experiences and things to get used to.

There are many things that parents, carers and young people need to consider and be aware of when making transition towards independent living.  Below you will find all the information and support in one place regarding choices and support for young people and young adults with SEND who want to live independently.
