Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland

Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland was a 12-month pilot programme trialing online support for young people aged 16-25 with additional needs in Scotland: hearing their voice, building confidence and supporting transitions.

Aim of the pilot

To determine the best models of support and provision of timely information to young people with additional support needs, and their parents and carers, in Scotland as they transition into adulthood.

Background and delivery

The project built upon nationally identified needs in Scotland to improve transitions. It was informed by coproduction with young people, parents and carers in Scotland. The pilot also included learning from our Time to Talk Next Steps project in England providing virtual support to young people with additional needs. Virtual personalised support was provided to 31 young people with additional support needs from across Scotland over a six month period (September 2022-February 2023).
