Contact, Lead Scotland, Gillespie Macandrew and ARC Scotland are holding a conference for parents and carers of young adults with disabilities and learning difficulties which aims to provide information and support about transitions.

Through presentations and practical workshops, the conference aims to provide parents and carers with the opportunity to build skills, confidence and conversation around areas such as preparation and planning for the future, through options and funding, to safeguarding health and wellbeing. Other topics covered throughout the day include finance, guardianship and legal protection, rights and responsibilities, community based learning/work opportunities, and developing assertiveness and negotiating skills.

This event is free to parents and carers of young people with disabilities and learning difficulties and Contact can help with travel and/or care costs if necessary. Please note Contact is unable to provide workshops or appropriate care facilities for young people on this occasion.

A limited number of places are available to professionals at a cost of £75 per delegate. If your organisation has fewer than 5 employees working directly with disabled young people and their families, please contact for details of special rates.
