Welcome to the Transition Taskforce hub

Every young person with a life-shortening condition deserves a smooth transition to adult services, respecting their wishes while providing care and support. But we know that’s not always the case.

Taskforce vision

Our vision is that all young people approaching adulthood with life-shortening conditions will make the transition to adult services and live their lives as independently as possible according to their wishes, while receiving the care and support they and their families need.

Taskforce mission

The Taskforce is seeking to overcome the barriers to good transition for young people with life-shortening conditions, by building and strengthening bridges between adult and children’s services.
