10 Transitions – update There is a project underway to develop a Transition pathway which will take into account new legislation and local priorities. The project will give progress reports to the Learning Disabilities Partnership Board. We want to gain your views as customers, family members and carers, so we will arrange forums and collect valuable feedback to help design the Transition Pathway.

The Transition pathway will also include Quality Assurance measures to ensure that young people’s experience of transition and outcomes are improved. Key performance indicators will be set and monitored, so that success can be measured. Picture of sad face and then a happy face and tick form
