In this paper important issues, which involved vulnerable adults with Intellectual disabilities in transition from one rural location to another urban location, in England (UK) during 2014 are discussed. The notion of citizenship is discussed in relation to service users who had intellectual disabilities. This was originally embedded within the policy document Valuing People (DH, 2001). The use of a Total Communication approach by a Social Worker is also discussed, underpinned by the Human Rights framework and tenets of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The outcomes from the transition process are highlighted, alongside the necessity to ensure that vulnerable adults are protected from abusive situations whilst living out their lives.
