Transition and Inclusion Service (TIS)

What we do

Barnardo's Transition and Inclusion Service (TIS) supports young people aged 16-21 with a learning disability, autism and/or physical disability in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust (SHSCT) area of Northern Ireland as they transition into adult services.

Over 12 weekly sessions the service aims to:
• Provide 1:1 support & home visits focusing on life skills, advice, mentoring and improving access to services
• Group work opportunities and social outings
• Capacity build the young person's parent/carer or significant adult in their life, to increase their awareness of services and confidence in supporting that young person to access them
• Create opportunities for young people to engage in consultations and with services to ensure that their needs are reflected in the planning and delivery of services in the future
