Anyone else feeling desperate about what it is out there for our young adults....I am the mum of an almost 24 year old son with complex needs....cerebral palsy...would love to settle him in a suitable place before I get too old and it’s an emergency situation....hoping to gain some info on here....it’s my first time posting.

My daughter is 20 and we plan to start looking. We would like her to move into the adult supported living at the college she attends when her course finishes in 2 years. I think standards vary hugely depending on area and of course local social services here will want the least expensive provision. We have two organisations, Together Trust and Independent Options that do manage supported living in individual households that I can think of.

Have you started looking? Any advice from your son's social worker?

Your son's social worker needs to start looking and assessments need to be done. I am experiencing similar difficulties with my 19 year old son, even though he is in a sheltered living environment.

My daughter doesn't have a named social worker, it is just a pool of staff. Any tips from people who have recently been through this process?
