Are you between age 16 and 25? Unsure what you will do after the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you answered 'yes' to the questions above (or know a young person who would), then NDTi's new programme might be of interest to you!

Time to Talk Next Steps is free support for young people in England in this age group with additional needs. It is for young people who are experiencing anxiety, isolation and who have limited or no plans for the future. You may be in school or in college or have finished all education and be unsure how to move forward.

If you are allocated support from the programme after filling out a Request for Support form, you will be introduced to one of our trained Supporters. They will meet you for an introduction and find out what will be most useful to help you move forward. This might be linking you with people who have similar issues and interests to you through peer support sessions, linking you with useful activities or contacts in your local area or providing you with individual sessions to build your confidence and explore next steps to suit you.

The project is being delivered in partnership with national disability charity, Contact, who provide support, information and workshops for parents and carers on transition to adulthood.

Hi I have a child turning 21 this week and has downs syndrome, he is currently at college, during the pandemic he had transition from post 16 to college, at that time I was supposed to have more help and information about his future but unfortunately we didn't get any. He has one more year left at college and I Don't know what is available out there after that. If you can help that will be great.
Thank you
