If you’re a young person (aged up to 25), you can check out our Young People's Pages for information about what's next after school. Yor-Zone is a website for children and young people in York and the Inclusion page is just a condensed version of the Local Offer. On the Inclusion page, there’s lots of information about inclusive activities and sports, travel, discounts, school, further education, jobs and more!

Transition Coordination Service

The Transition coordination service was established at York Hospital in 2021 to support young people in their transition from the child-centred into the adult-orientated healthcare services - this process is widely known as either transition or preparation for adulthood.

The service is nurse led and takes a holistic and individualised approach, where children and young people are supported in a planned and purposeful way which addresses their medical, psychosocial, and educational/vocational needs to best prepare them for transition into adulthood and adult health services.

The transition coordinator is Richard Bentley, he can be contacted on yorktransition@york.nhs.uk. Referrals into the transition service are made through your clinical specialist or other professional.
