Launch of proposed Disabled Children and Young People (Transitions) (Scotland) Bill

Section: Policy into Practice Location: Edinburgh City Date of event: 09/10/2019 at 1:30

Johann Lamont MSP is launching a new Bill designed to support children and young people with an impairment or long term health condition.

The Disabled Children and Young People (Transitions)(Scotland) Bill has been developed by Johann with support from Camphill Scotland and Inclusion Scotland.

The Bill would give a right to a Transitions Plan to every child or young person with an impairment or long term health condition. Support with transitions would then remain in place until no longer needed, or the young person’s 26th birthday.

The Bill would also require the Scottish Government to introduce a national transitions strategy to improve outcomes for children and young people with a disability in the transition to adulthood, and require the Scottish Government to appoint a Minister with special responsibility for transitions.
