About Principles into Practice

You can download Principles into Practice below.

Principles into Practice is a draft framework, based on the Principles of Good Transitions, which has been developed by ARC Scotland in consultation with young people, parents and carers, and professionals across many sectors.

Principles into Practice is being trialled in 10 local authority areas over 2 years, with support from ARC Scotland’s Scottish Transitions Forum and the Scottish Government.

Involving young people, and their parents and carers, is essential to Principles into Practice to ensure services are evaluated, and improved, based on their lived experiences. 

The Principles into Practice Trial Programme will help make a real difference to the lives of young people aged between 14 and 25 who need additional support as they make the transition to young adult life, and will help ensure young people are at the centre of all transition planning for their future.

By the end of the trial there will be a fully developed and tested framework, and evaluation resources, that will be freely available to every local authority area in Scotland.

For more information on the trials, visit the Principles into Practice website at www.pn2p.scot.
