Learn how to increase opportunities and options for young people in transition at Learning Disability Today in Sheffield on 30 April.

United Response is delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting and presenting at Learning Disability Today in Sheffield on Thursday 30 April.

Pop along to Stand 2 to access our wealth of resources, and talk to our friendly staff about the services we provide, which aim to enhance your quality of life and put you in control to live your life – your way.

Lost in Transition presentation

On top of this, we are thrilled to have been invited to deliver a specialist presentation and share our knowledge on how to successfully navigate the process of transition from children’s to adult’s services.

The presentation will be delivered by Diane Lightfoot, director of communications and fundraising, and Amie Dobinson, development coordinator for the North West. Together they will be delivering an informative session called Lost in Transition, during which they will share the wealth of knowledge our organisation has gained through many years of successfully supporting young people in transition.

We intend to cover the impact of the Children and Families Act 2014, realistic outcomes following a Transition Assessment and real-life examples of individuals we’ve supported through transitions, along with the variety of tools available to continually measure progress.

Come along, say hello and pick up some free resources

If you have a burning issue relevant to the transition process or if you are struggling to get the support you need, be sure to head over to Room 2 for 11.15am so you can secure the best seat in the house because this excellent session is guaranteed to equip you with a better understanding of the transition process.

If your query is not covered during the talk, you will have a chance to put it forward to presenters during the live question and answer session at the end of the presentation.

All delegates who attend the talk will receive a specially prepared resource that provides five top tips to help you support young adults in gaining independence. There will also be further resources mentioned in the talk available on our stand.

See you in Sheffield!

Vicki Arogundade, marketing development officer.
