Preparing young people with learning disabilities for adulthood

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has published a guide looking at what social workers need to do to help young people with learning disabilities prepare for adulthood.


The guidance includes a practice framework which sets out what social workers need in order to do this, including: the right support, systems and commissioning; an understanding of social care law and theories; a commitment to human rights; the ability to work in multi-agency settings and a focus on the needs and wishes of the person they support.
