Change that leads to better lives

Preparing for Adulthood programme Launch

Despite often having the same aspirations as their peers, young disabled people are less likely to achieve paid employment, independent living, good health and community inclusion as they move into adulthood. These are the building blocks to a fulfilling adult life that most people take for granted.

The Department for Education has commissioned a two year programme that will provide knowledge and support to local authorities and their partners, including families and young people, to ensure that disabled young people achieve better life chances as they move into adulthood.

The Preparing for Adulthood programme will be delivered by a consortium led by The National Development Team for Inclusion. The consortium, consisting of the Council for Disabled Children (CDC), Helen Sanderson Associates (HSA) and NDTi brings together a wealth of expertise and experience of best practice in supporting local authorities, health services, schools and colleges to enable disabled young people prepare for adult life and achieve equal life chances.
