Exploring Transitions: An Important Survey

We are seeking the views of views of young people and their parents and carers for an important national piece of work.

ARC Scotland have been commissioned by the Scottish Government to map the availability of planning and support for people aged 14 - 25 years who have additional support needs in Scotland. A central part of this work is to ask young people and their parents / carers about their experiences during this important time of their lives.

Two surveys have been created, one for young people and the other for parents and carers. We would like your help to circulate these to as many people as possible.

The findings will be published in early 2017. This will help the Scottish Government, local authorities, and other organisations to make decisions about how support can be improved for people with additional needs that are in 'transition' to young adult life.

The survey should only take between 10-30 minutes and must be completed by Friday 11th of November. The participants will be anonymous.

The parents and carers survey can be accessed here: (This survey is for parents or unpaid carers of a young person with additional support needs between the ages of 14 and 25 years)

The young person's survey can be accessed here: (This survey is for young people between 14 and 25 years old who have one or more additional need, like learning disability, autism, physical or sensory disability)

Thank you.
