About

Positive Transition is a new digital platform which will modernise and transform the transition process. The platform is people-centric and outcome driven, and represents a holistic model designed from the perspective of the person transitioning, based on the real-life experiences of 100’s of service-leavers, both positive and negative. The Positive Transition Team are driven by experience of transitioning themselves, and supporting others who have. They understand the unique opportunities and barriers for someone in this position and are translating this vision into a comprehensive package of support which can be truly engaging and effective for people during, after or approaching transition.

Change is situational. Transition, on the other hand, is psychological. It is not those events, but rather the inner reorientation or self-redefinition that you have to go through in order to incorporate any of those changes into your life. Without a transition, a change is just a rearrangement of the furniture. Unless transition happens, the change won't work, because it doesn't take.
