The Scottish Government has commissioned ARC
Scotland to map the availability of planning and support for
people aged 14 - 25 years who have additional support needs in Scotland.
They will publish the findings of their work in early 2017. This will
help the Scottish Government, local authorities, and other organisations
to make decisions about how support can be improved for people with
additional needs that are in ‘transition’ to young adult life.
They have developed two surveys to help gather the views and experiences of young people and their parents/carers. The surveys should take between 10 – 30 minutes and must be completed by Friday 11 November 2016. Participants won't be asked their name or address, and nobody will be able to identify them as the person who filled out the survey. They are keen to get as many survey responses as possible.
The parents and carers survey can be accessed by clicking here.
(This survey is for parents or unpaid carers of a young person with additional support needs between the ages of 14 and 25 years)
The young person's survey can be accessed by clicking here.
(This survey is for young people between 14 and 25 years old who have one or more additional need, like learning disability, autism, physical or sensory disability)
It is fine for participants to ask someone to help them fill out this survey.
ARC Scotland facilitates the Scottish Transitions Forum. This is a national network with over 550 members that aims to improve the experience of people with additional support needs, particularly those with high support needs, as they go through life transitions. The forum is responsible for the publication ‘Principles of Good Transitions.’
