Reading Mencap – Preparing for Adulthood Service
Support for transitioning to adulthood
An information, advice, and advocacy service for young people with learning disabilities aged 16-25 and their families.
A new Reading Borough Council funded service to support young people and adults with Learning Disability and Autism and their families, who are aged 16-25 and preparing for adulthood.
Our new full time Transitions Family Adviser will offer an independent, outreach, information, advice and support service to guide young people and their families through the complexities of becoming an adult, to manage the changes in social care, benefits, housing, health, education, employment and financial management.
Our vision for children and young people with learning disabilities and autism in Reading is the same as for all children and young people, that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college and make a good transition to adulthood to lead contented and fulfilled lives.
