Transition is to assist and enable young people with disabilities to achieve their aspirations in life.
It may be living independently, learning to drive, accessing education, starting work and making sure that they have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
It is a journey that involves the whole family of that individual and making sure they are also supported and reassured on this journey.
Every young person has to make these life changing decisions and we endeavour to lift the barriers and face the challenges head on.

Our most recent event was Young NMC. This was a fun and informative day with pasta making, creative activities and games. It provided young people, who live alongside someone with a neuromuscular condition, an opportunity to explore topics and issues that may affect them.
