Transition Information Network (TIN)

The Transition Information Network (TIN) is an alliance of organisations and individuals who come together with a common aim: to improve the experience of disabled young people’s transition to adulthood. TIN is a source of information and good practice standards for disabled young people, families and professionals.

TIN is based at the Council for Disabled Children (external link), the umbrella body for the disabled children's sector. The Council for Disabled Children is hosted by the National Children's Bureau (external link).

What we do

We provide information and resources about transition through our website, publications and events.

  • Magazine
    We publish a magazine called My Future Choices. The magazine is for disabled young people, families and professionals. It includes articles about transition projects, interviews with disabled young people, the latest policy and charity news and resources.
  • E-bulletin
    We produce an e-bulletin which lists the latest policy and practice developments effecting disabled young people in transition.
  • Seminars
    We run seminars which provide disabled young people, parents and professionals the opportunity to explore and discuss transition issues.

Behind the scenes
We also work behind the scenes on policy issues, respond to government consultations and work with leading organisations to develop and promote good practice standards in transition.
