FUTURE FEST – The Treloar Transition Event
For twenty-five years now the ‘FUTURE FEST’ transition event has provided a very successful and vital information service so that students can begin to investigate options available to them for when they leave Treloar’s. We know that sorting out the next stage for a young person when they leave the school or college can be very daunting. Our Progress & Transition Team work closely to support our students and their families, and can offer advice and guidance at every stage of the journey through Treloar’s and beyond.
We have used both a one day ‘Future Fest’ event, held onsite, as well as the successful virtual format to introduce our students to a wide range of future living providers and other services.
In February 2024, just before half term, we will host the ‘Future Fest’ transition event on campus again. Service providers are invited to Treloar’s for the day to participate in an exhibition during which students, their families and the staff are all able to access the people and resources the exhibition provides.
To help guide choices we compile a directory of services, packed full of information, to support our students. This is available at any time and is regularly updated by the Future Fest Coordinator.
NB: Many future living providers & day services have waiting lists, so it helps to begin researching these options early and ‘Future Fest’ is a vital part of the process.
Next event: Friday 9th February 2024
If you have any further questions, please contact our Transitions team.
