Disabled Children

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 19 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the transition support programme announced in Aiming High for Disabled Children: Better Support for Families will be piloted; and in what parts of the country these pilots will take place. (143557)

I have been asked to reply.

We intend that the Transition Support Programme will be piloted from 2008-09. Work is in progress on developing the pilots and more details will be available later this year. No decision has yet been taken on what parts of the country the pilots will take place.

The Council for Disabled Children has produced draft guidance on transition which will be published by the Department later this summer.
