Nash College in Bromley will be hosting a free conference, entitled Preparing For Adulthood on Saturday 7th July 2012. The event will provide young disabled people with complex needs and their families with key information and support on issues such as accessing higher education, employment and housing and how to manage their own care and development through Personal Budgets and support planning.

The event will take place from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

There will be information stalls to visit and various activities taking place during the day. Light refreshments will be available and parking is available onsite for disabled people. The various talks will centre on the transition to adulthood for young disabled people, as well as giving advice to their parents on helping them manage the process. A solicitor will be discussing subjects such as power of attorney, wills and trusts. Representatives from Bromley Council will talk about the Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disabilities Green Paper and their Pathfinder project.
