Design/methodology/approach: The evidence is based on qualitative interviews with 130 managers and staff in five transition services across England, and a quantitative survey of parents and young people receiving these services (pre-transition), or having received the services in the last two years (post-transition). In total, 110 pre-transition and 33 post-transition parents, and 73 pre-transition and 24 post-transition young people, completed questionnaires.

Findings: The research found examples of good practice and innovative services to meet young people's needs. However, provision of such services was patchy, and unmet need for transition support remained high in all the priority areas studied both during and after transition: ranging from 52 to 84 per cent in parent reports and 59 to 82 per cent in young people's reports.
