Abstract

For many disabled young people, the process of moving from children's to adult services is problematic. Research has shown: problems in coordination of services and lack of multi-agency working, lack of information for young people and parents, insufficient attention to the concerns of the young person, and lack of appropriate services onto which young people can transfer. This research aimed to provide evidence of what works well in developing and implementing multi-agency coordinated transition services for these young people and their families. It also assessed the costs of the services.
