Chailey Heritage Foundation leads at Linden Lodge School Transition Fair

14 May 2024

Every year, Linden Lodge holds a transition fair attended by colleges, organisations, and disability experts to provide families with comprehensive and current information. Linden Lodge is a Day and Residential Special Needs School for pupils with Vision and Sensory Impairment, in Wimbledon Park, Wandsworth. On 9th May 2024, Chailey Heritage was a part of this Transition Event as Susan Duke, Referrals and Placement Manager, Jess Woodward, LSC Manager and Paula Marten, Assistant Headteacher, spent the day meeting and talking with parents and professionals about the Adult Services available at Chailey. Paula delivered the opening speech for the event, talking about transition to adult services for young people with complex neurodisabilities – the challenges faced by parents and carers when a young person makes the move to adult services, what successful transition looks like, and the work that happens at Chailey to enable the process. At CHF, we have learnt a huge amount about Transition in recent years. We want to share what we have learnt with parents and professionals from other places because as well as helping others, this offers an amazing opportunity for us to learn more. 

Representatives from Dorton College in Kent, Focus Specialist VI college in Exeter, Queen Alexandra College in Birmingham, Thomas Pocklington Trust, National Star College in Gloucester, and Croydon Youth Disabilities Project attended the Transition Fair at Linden Lodge.
