Moving Forward

Adults and young people with SEND or a learning disability are invited to Moving Forward, an education, employment, health, and community support information event. The free event will showcase services and employers across the city who support adults and young people with SEND or a learning disability.

Young people aged 14-24, along with their parents and carers, are invited to find out about opportunities available as they transition to adulthood. Information will be available on employability, health, independent living and community inclusion.

Adults, carers and professionals are invited to find out more about services in Portsmouth for people with a learning disability.

No EHCp but needs not being met (struggling) Case study
