Disabled Children and Young People (Transitions) (Scotland) Bill

23 January 2020 - Royal Blind welcomes the proposal for a Transitions Bill. Managing transitions is consistently one of the biggest challenges for the children and young people we work with. We believe too many young people with visual impairment do not have the support they need in the transition to adulthood, and this can have a lasting impact on their lives. A transitions plan would put in place clear, agreed objectives and timescales. It would help to manage expectations and better prepare the young person for moving into adulthood. A National Transitions Strategy would help ensure accountability and place transition planning on a statutory footing.
