Ty'r Bont

Ty’r Bont is a transition Day Service based on Ty Gwyn school site. The service helps young people in their final years at school to prepare for the transition to adult life. The team work alongside school staff in the classroom to build rapport and gather information in order to create a plan focusing on what is important to the young person, their future goals and what they need to keep them safe. 


Once the young person has left school they can take the plan with them to their next destination and the team will work alongside them to make that transition as successful as possible. Some young people chose to remain with the transition service for several years post school to keep building on skills and experiences for adult life.


We work with young people to create a plan that focuses on the things that are important to them. We support people to attend a variety of community-based opportunities that develop independent living skills, skills needed for the wider world of work including volunteering, as well as access to leisure opportunities, arts and crafts and other recreational opportunities. We aim to help young people make links, networks and build friendships with likeminded people in the community.


We work alongside the community health team to help young people to be fit and well and to also support individuals with significant health needs.
