  • assist young people and families to think about the future, including work, health, housing, finance and support and plan options in adulthood
  • complete adult Care Act assessments of need and identify needs, outcomes and packages of support with young people to meet identified needs, for individuals with or without a learning disability
  • help young people and families understand how support in adulthood can be different to support provided to children
  • make referrals to adult services as required and accompany families on visits if required
  • attend annual education reviews at key transition points
