Transition is a good time for you and your son or daughter to start thinking about their housing options for the future. While some young people want to remain living with their families, others may want to move out of home.
It is a good idea to start to get information about what is available as early as you can, and to think about what support or physical adaptations your son or daughter may need. The issue of suitable housing and support should be considered during a community care assessment (or a Unified Assessment in Wales). Start by asking your social worker or care manager what's available in your area.
Start thinking early about housing and support options, as it takes time for money to become available to build new properties if you need something purpose built. You could also find out if there are young people who have similar needs to your son or daughter, who could potentially share a place to live in the future.
