Draft Bexley Preparing for Adulthood Strategy

5 March 2018 - 14 June 2018

The Council is working together with other organisations, young people and carers on a Draft Preparing for Adulthood Strategy for Bexley (PDF 1,209KB)

‘Preparing for Adulthood’ means getting ready to move from childhood into adult life. It starts when a young person is 14 and may continue until they are 25. The Council and our partners have a responsibility in regard to young people preparing for adulthood, who are likely to continue to have needs into their adult lives.

We want to work in new ways to ensure young people with Special Educational Needs or Disability can achieve good outcomes, such as getting a job or going to college. We also want them to live as independently as possible with good care and support if they need it.

The draft ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ strategy sets out our priorities over the next four years. These are:

  • Independent living
  • Participation in society
  • Education, employment, training and volunteering
  • Being as healthy as possible in adult life
  • Looked After Children and Care Leavers

The Council and our partners want to make sure that we get the strategy right and would welcome your views. You can get involved in the following ways:
