Quick Overview

This publication describes a unique project that took place at the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH), utilising sporting metaphors and the Team of Life narrative approach to assist young people and their families. When adulthood approaches for young people who have attended hospital over many years throughout their childhood due to serious and chronic health conditions, the transition can be complex. Moving from the care of dedicated staff at the RCH into adult heath services can pose significant challenges.

This project involved a partnership between the Transition Support Service and the Dulwich Centre Foundation. We worked together to adapt the Team of Life narrative approach to support young people and their families.

This publication describes the process of these sessions, explains the key principles, and includes the words of young people and parents. It also includes reflections from team members and feedback and evaluations from participants. It is hoped that this will provide information and inspiration to those working in other health settings.
