PfA Regional Leads & Networks:

Each of the 9 regions have a Preparing for Adulthood network:

  • To support peer learning at a regional level to ensure the delivery of the PfA elements of the reforms across Education, Health and Care (Children and adults)
  • Each network meets twice in each region during the year, although there is continued liaison across the region throughout the year.
  • Feedback from the region is shared with the Department for Education, including best practice examples and issues and challenges
  • PfA networks work with other regional networks, for example Association of Directors of Children’s Services, NHSE regional networks to ensure synergy and sharing across the region.

For information about the PfA network in your region, please contact your PfA regional lead listed below.
