Thinking Ahead: supporting families to plan for the future

The Thinking Ahead guides are about talking about, and planning for, the future. There is a guide for families and an easy-read guide for people with learning disabilities. They have been developed with families and people with learning disabilities.

The guides are particularly helpful in preparing for times of change such as leaving education, moving home, looking for new opportunities and emergency situations.

People with learning disabilities need support to shape their future and be central to any planning.

Parents, siblings and other relatives and friends can all be part of planning for a good future.

Together Matters now manages the ‘Thinking Ahead’ programme of work. Please visit their website to download the guides and see details of their development work.
