Moving On event in May

Sefton Council is holding a ‘Moving on’ event to help young people with a disability and their families find out more about their options when they leave school and approach adulthood.

The drop-in event will take place at Crosby Leisure Centre on Wednesday, May 22, 10am – 2pm and is targeted at Sefton residents aged 14-25 years who have a disability or special educational need.

This is an opportunity for young people and their parents or carers to find out about colleges, supported employment, volunteering, welfare rights, health, social service support and other local opportunities.

More than 35 providers have been confirmed for the drop-in event to help answer any questions and provide information. There will also be lots of fun and interactive things to do on the day.

Dwayne Johnson, Director for Social Care and Health, said: “Leaving school and becoming an adult can be a stressful time for any young person as they start making decisions about their future.

“Moving On will provide an opportunity for young people in Sefton to learn more about their options and help them make the right decisions about their future.”
