Get set GO 3 ! Next steps into Adulthood for young people, aged 14-25 with special needs

Get set GO 3 ! Next steps into Adulthood for young people, aged 14-25 with special needs and disabilities (SEND).   This free event jointly organised by Wandsworth Council and South Thames College,  with funding from Wandsworth Ambitions Careers Cluster, is for young people, 14-25 with SEND, their parents/carers and other service providers, and professionals. 

With more stands, workshops and presentations than last year’s excellent event, the remit has been widened in response to feedback to include Health, Housing and Social Activities. This event will demonstrate the various routes young people can take into education, employment, training, independent travel,  independent living, health support, money and benefits, social life and more.

Schools will be bringing groups of students aged from 14 to 19.  Young people 14 to 25 years old, at out of borough schools or colleges, parents, carers, professionals, employers, teachers, providers and trainers are all welcome to join us for this exciting event.

Please use Eventbrite to book your free place, which includes a light lunch: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/get-set-go-3-tickets-38653674180

If you are a provider, exhibition spaces are free, please contact the organisers by email on getsetgo@wandsworth.gov.uk to book your stall and lunch.

This event follows on from 2016 and 2017's hugely successful Get Set GO! events.   We have a range of exhibitors covering a wide offer of provision and services. These include education, traineeships, housing options, health information, benefits and social life.   You can attend all or just part of the morning.

There will be inspiring speakers, workshops to take part in,  a dance display and demonstrations of the latest technology to support young people in and into work.  To give you an idea of the event, the DCR Newsletter attached, has an article on pages 14 and 15 about Get Set Go2! and the programme from that event is also attached.

There will also be stands where you can talk to providers, who will include:

Find out about:

  • your choices after school or college
  • alternatives to education
