Calling Parents and Carers

The Scottish Transitions Forum is inviting parents and carers to take part in discussion groups across Scotland as part of a national consultation to help young people with additional support needs experience better transitions from school age into adult life.

Events are taking place in:

  • Aberdeenshire (Thursday 23 January)
  • Ayrshire (date to be confirmed)
  • Edinburgh (Tuesday 28 January)
  • Dundee (date to be confirmed)
  • Inverness (Tuesday 4 February)
  • Perth (date to be confirmed)
  • Lanarkshire (date to be confirmed)
  • Scottish Borders (Thursday 13 February)

If you care for someone with additional support needs who is aged 14-25 and you’d be happy to meet other parents to talk about what would make transitions easier, please email Tracey Francis at for more details.

“Principles into Practice” is the draft for a national framework to help professionals get transitions right. The Forum is asking parents and carers to give feedback on the framework to make sure it will make a real difference to young peoples’ lives and experiences.
