A Salford charity branch helps young disabled people prepare for disabled adulthood through national online webinar Transition Week event.

Penderels Trust’s Salford branch are involved in My Family and Our Needs’ weeklong online event where young disabled people and experts discuss the topic of the transition from young disabled care to adult.

Sam Cook, Service Manager of the Salford and Greater Manchester Penderels Trust branch, spoke to Salford Now about the event:

“The main thing about the event is making people aware that we’re here”

“The services we can offer are relevant to students and adults and the transition bit in-between”.
