In addition to the CI, the Transition Programme is led by 9 other investigators, called co-applicants.  The co-applicants are jointly responsible for the research programme and are assisted by collaborators and research associates across the UK, who are undertaking the research.

Additional oversight and advice to the programme is provided by the steering group (or 'External Advisory Board') and the young people’s working group, ‘UP’.
