CHAS has a dedicated transition team to work alongside young people over the age of 18 years to enable them to move on into adult age appropriate care.
Moving on from CHAS
In CHAS, we offer support to babies, children and young people up to the age of 21 years, and their families. Moving from children’s to adult services is an important step and we talk about this as 'transition'. When that time comes, our transition team will support you, and those closest to you, to ensure a smooth transition away from CHAS. The team will work with you to find support and care which is more suitable for you as a young adult and help you to achieve goals.
Our Transition Team
Our team is based in Rachel House and Robin House and we work with young people from all over Scotland. So we can help you get your transition right. We take time to do this and we will start talking to you about your transition from the age of 18. You will have your own transition worker who can visit you at home, in your local community, or in the hospice when you come in for a break.
The transition team are:
Claire Turnbull - Transition Manager
Jen Milburn - Transition Worker
Laura Paterson - Administrative Assistant
