Next Steps Event
A free information event about leaving school or college, finding work and becoming more independent!
For people with Special Educational Needs, Learning Disability, Families, Carers and Practitioners
Over the past two years Wirral Mencap have run a Pathways to Employment event and a Benefits to Employment event for people with a learning disability, their families, carers and practitioners. They have had great input to these events from a range of services and received excellent feedback from attendees.
This year they are working in partnership with Parent Carer Participation Wirral to deliver a Next Steps event, covering transitions for people with SEND and/or a learning disability. The great benefit of such a collaboration is that they can reach a wider audience all of whom experience common themes in moving into and through adulthood and across the education, social care and health sectors.
There will be speakers from education, health, social care and employment services delivering presentations on priorities and processes in their respective areas along with a marketplace of agencies and services from each of these areas.The aim for the event is to increase the knowledge and understanding of parents, carers, people with SEND and learning disabilities, and practitioners on transition, how services operate in their local area and how to work with these services to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
Date: Tuesday 11th June 2019
Time: 10:30 am-2.00pm
Venue: The Lauries Centre, 142 Claughton Road, Birkenhead, Wirral, CH41 6EY
