 Adult Care's transitions service is provided by the Intake and Transitions Team, which is part of the Learning Disability Service Area. The Intake and Transitions team work in partnership with Children's Services, to support young people with disabilities who are moving into adulthood, and are anticipated to require Adult Social Care's involvement after they turn 18.

For those who meet the threshold for adult care and where a service is required, the Intake and Transitions Team will liaise with other relevant professionals, the young person and their family to set it up. For those no longer in education, they will be transferred to one of the appropriate area teams and a review will be undertaken. Following the review, services can remain the same, decrease or increase.

If a young person is alreay receiving services before turning 18, then please speak to their practitioner. If not, and they are over 18, then the Care and Wellbeing Hub should be the first point of contact for all general enquiries.

They can be contacted from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday on 01522 782155 or email

When Adult Care are contacted, someone will discuss the situation over the phone, check that they have all the facts straight, and then in some circumstances, follow this up with a transition assessment.

If you look after someone, you can contact the Carers Services on01522 782224
