Young People’s Transition into Adult Social Care
This course is designed to provide an opportunity to examine the key legal and policy issues relevant to young people’s transition from children’s services to adult social care and how these apply to the role of adult social care social workers. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, these sessions will be delivered via two separate webinars each of 3 hours.
By the end of the course participants will have:
· improved their knowledge and understanding of legal, policy and practice issues relating to the transition of young people to adult social care, in particular:
i. the legal responsibilities of local authorities (children’s services and adult social care) and other agencies (such as health bodies) to manage the transition process
ii. planning for transition of disabled young people: key stages in this process and core responsibilities of children’s services and adult social care services
iii. the ‘decision-making dynamics’ (e.g. the role of parents, the developing decision-making capacities of young people, confidentiality and sharing information) and the importance of seeking and the scope of parental responsibility
· consider how to apply such knowledge and understanding to their practice.
Monday September 28th 9.30am – 12.30pm
Wednesday September 30th 9.30am – 12.30pm
Delivery via webinar – participants must attend both sessions in order to complete this training.
