The Scottish Transitions Forum meets every 3 months and is open to anyone who wishes to take a lead and to contribute to making fundamental improvements to transitions for people with additional support needs.
Members have access to an e-forum so they can communicate between meetings. Information concerning transitions policy, practice and news is regularly posted on the e-forum. See the Scottish Transitions Forum.
The Scottish Transitions forum has over 100 members from a wide range of groups and organisations. to join the forum contact James
The Scottish Transitions forum 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 has a focus on the transition of young people from school or college to adult life.
It achieves this by :
- Bringing together people working in transitions for people with additional support needs
- Identifying and sharing good practice, learning and resources
- Generating new ideas, challenging our thinking and improving our work practice
- Involving and consulting with people with additional support needs and for their views to influence and guide the work of the forum
- Working collectively to raise awareness, inform and influence approaches to transitions for people with additional support needs at a local and national level
Working in Partnership
The Scottish Transitions Forum works in partnership with For Scotland’s Disabled Children and functions as the Transitions Task group for the fSD coalition.
Established by ARC Scotland
The forum was established by ARC Scotland following feedback from two conferences:
- Moving out: Moving on – But where to?
Facilitated by Camphill Scotland and the Scottish Executive and supported by Cornerstone Community Care in April 2009
- It’s My Life Conference
facilitated by ARC Scotland in November 2008 in Inverness.
