Purpose – The aim of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of the My Way transition programme.
Design/methodology/approach – The programme was evaluated over a two year period via interviews with a range of stakeholders. The evaluation focused on outcomes for young people, experience of the transition process, differences in the cost of care packages and an exploration of what was different about the My Way approach.
Findings – There were positive outcomes for young disabled people using the programme, and reduced costs to commissioners. The success of the My Way programme seemed to result from its focus on implementing actions and “doing” rather than just developing plans.
Originality/value – This study provides evidence for commissioners, providers and service users of the importance of providing person-centred facilitators who implement actions. It clearly demonstrates that when this happens savings can be made and good outcomes achieved.
