Royal Borough of Greenwich Moving to Adult Guide 2023
Following a successful pilot programme from 2020 2023, the Royal Borough of Greenwich has restructured its services to create the extended Disabled Children and Young People Service (DCYPS), supporting young people with an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) who require social care support until they leave education. This can be up to the age of 25.
Young people who have an EHCP and require adult social care support will remain in the new DCYPS until the plan ends , better aligning the moving to adulthood point with the life stage of leaving education.
From there, the young person is supported into the relevant services for their adult support needs.
