Preparing for Adulthood event feedback

Colleges, schools, young people, and their families attended a bustling Preparing for Adulthood event at Shrewsbury Town Football Club on 15 November 2018. The event was organised by Shropshire Council in partnership with Severndale Academy, and offered the opportunity for Shropshire children and young people with special education needs to find out more about what's available in Shropshire to support them make decisions about pathways for their adulthood.

Four sessions took place during the day, including a morning quiet session. A variety of stalls offered information, with people on hand to chat and answer questions. Video presentations throughout the day provided the option to find out more about support and services. Refreshments and delicious cakes were prepared by the students from Futures.

The event was very successful and we plan to hold another next year. The videos from the event can be viewed on YouTube.
