The Scottish Government has commissioned ARC Scotland to map the availability of planning and support for people aged 14 - 25 years who have additional support needs in Scotland.

A central part of the work is to ask young people and their parents / carers about their experiences during this important time of their lives. To do this, they have developed two surveys, one for young people and the other for parents and carers.

  • Parents and carers survey - Please take part in this survey if you are the parent or unpaid carer of a young person with additional support needs between the ages of 14 and 25 years).
  • Young persons' survey - Please take part in this survey if you are between 14 and 25 years old and have one or more additional needs, like learning disability, autism, physical or sensory disability).
