This new and innovative service will provide social care services for eligible children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities from the age of 0 up to the age of 25 ensuring a smooth and seamless transition into Adult's Services, at the best time based on their individual needs and circumstances. This new structure will provide increased capacity ensuring that children, young people and their families are provided with high-quality social care services and their experience and outcomes continue to improve.
