This guide is for any young person with a life-threatening condition who is thinking about their future as an adult and wanting to consider their options and plan ahead in terms of education, employment and living arrangements, as well as what’s important to them in other areas of their life. It aims to help young people make sure that the care and support they need is available so that they can get on with living.

This guide has been divided into two main sections. The first section talks about what you can expect at different stages of the transition process to adult services. The second section focuses on different aspects of your life that you may want to plan for as an adult.
