At Demelza, we have exciting plans for how we intend to develop our Transition Service and are looking for a passionate Transition Lead to help make this happen, by developing and implementing our new Transition Framework.
We know that there is a range of challenges the families we support currently face when it comes to transitioning into adulthood. From losing familiar paediatric medical and social support that families have received for years; parents’ wishes not being taken into consideration or even ignored when it comes to medical decisions; families having to fight for the support or funding they are entitled to.
As we develop our Transition services, this will directly impact and benefit those aged 14-25, offering advice, support and information to navigate this very challenging time. Empowering to ask the right questions to receive the support they need.
What do we mean by transitions?
Transition isn’t a single event but a gradual process of supporting a young person and their family through their adolescence and into adulthood.
For both the young person and their families/parents/carers this is building their trust and confidence and ability to plan ahead for the care and support they will need into adulthood.
Transition Lead job
