This is a proposal for a Member’s Bill
Date lodged: 20 September 2021
This is a proposal for a Member’s Bill to require the Scottish Ministers to introduce, and to implement, a statutory National Transitions Strategy to improve outcomes for disabled children and young people in the transition to adulthood; to require the Scottish Ministers to assign to a member of the Scottish Government, or to a junior Scottish Minister, special responsibility in relation to the exercise of their functions under the legislation; and to require local authorities to introduce a transitions plan for each disabled child and young person to ensure that each disabled child and young person receives appropriate care and support before, and during, the transition to adulthood.
