Updated: 01 April 2017

What's Important To Us

For a disabled young person leaving care, planning is critical to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to adult disability services. A team focus on the young person throughout the transition process is essential, involving the young person, their family/whānau, currently involved professionals, and others who will become part of the young person's support network in the future.
