This film was created by young people as part of a series intended to provide accessible guides to the SEND Reforms. To continue this we are working with young people to develop accessible Preparing for Adulthood information.
‚ÄčThe National Preparing for Adulthood programme (PfA)

The National Preparing for Adulthood programme (PfA) is delivered by a partnership between the National Development Team for inclusion (NDTi) and the Council for Disabled Children (CDC). The programme is funded by the Department for Education as part of the Delivering Better Outcomes Together consortium.

The Preparing for Adulthood programme provides expertise and support to local authorities and their partners to embed preparing for adulthood from the earliest years

The Preparing for Adulthood outcomes are based on what disabled young people say is important to them. Ultimately young people want to have full lives with choices about their future and control of their support. 

Our Preparing for Adulthood section is being developed to match these outcomes and using the Developing the Preparation for Adulthood section of the Local Offer document as a reference.
