County Multi-Agency Transition Steering Group

The County Multi-Agency Transition Steering Group includes representatives from all main agencies and non-statutory / user representatives. The purpose of the group is to:

  • lead the development of inter-agency transition strategy and publish guidance to reflect national policy and meet local needs
  • review the quality of transition planning across the county
  • analyse and collate information about identified unmet needs
  • support locality groups, identifying opportunities for information sharing and training across agencies and/or localities

Non-statutory organisations

A range of organisations are concerned with supporting young people. Some are generic while others specialise in information and support for particular needs or conditions. They may provide additional services and can make a significant contribution to Transition Planning.
