What does your service do?

Our goal is to support disabled young people to become empowered adults.

We work alongside young people and their family or carers to support growing independence, helping young people to feel more able to take the lead in their healthcare.

By offering occupational therapy and physiotherapy input, we support with developing a wide range of skills and linking with other agencies to find opportunities for the future.

Where is it located and what areas does it cover?

We are based at the Western Community Hospital, but meet with young people in their homes, schools, colleges, university halls, work places and other community settings.

Who does your service provide for?

Young people, between the ages of 14 – 25 who have complex physical disabilities and who have a Southampton GP.  These disabilities are predominantly neurological and some young people also have learning disabilities.

We offer a person-centred, holistic approach.

How can I start using the service?

Young people can self-refer.  Referrals also come from colleagues in health or education, Social Services, Advocacy, etc.  Email SNHS.TransitionTherapy@nhs.net for a referral form.

How are decisions made about who can use your service?

We don’t operate a waiting list, and aim to make contact within 2 weeks of receiving the referral so that we can find a time to meet with you.

How do you communicate with service users and how are they involved in decision making/planning?

We use whatever communication method is preferred by the young person we’re working with. We’ve shaped our service from input from young people & their families, and continue to value input. 

Is your service fully accessible?

We meet young people in the place of their choice that works well for their access issues.

What training are the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had or are having?

Our team is made up of a qualified Occupational Therapist & a qualified physiotherapist, and we keep up to date with training that’s needed to fulfil this role.  We work closely with other services & agencies working with disabled young people.

How will I know my child will be safe using this service?

The Care Quality Commission inspect our service.  We have very positive feedback from service users and their families.

How do I give feedback, make comments or raise concerns?

We regularly ask for feedback, and are happy to discuss any concerns.
