The Transition Team

The City of York’s  Multi-Agency Team supporting disabled young people and those with Special Educational Needs as they become adults

  • access individual budgets 
  • find an appropriate course or work experience. 
  • access training to increase independence travel skills 
  • develop plans to live in their own home
