InterAct has 20 years’ experience of working with children and young people in Essex with learning disabilities / additional needs, responding in fresh & person-centred ways to changing needs and opportunities, with a particular focus on supporting teenagers to have successful  journeys towards more independent adult lives.

Currently, InterAct’s largest programme is ‘Short Breaks’: our range of clubs & activities for young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), ages 10-18.

The Together Club is run by InterAct specifically for young adults with additional needs between the ages of 18-25.

InterAct’s works alongside a wide range of other local organisations and services, so that children, young people and families can receive appropriate support and opportunities.

InterAct’s other projects for young people aim to enable them to feel more confident in facing the future, so they can be more included within their local communities, and have a stronger voice on issues affecting their lives.

“InterAct has made such a massively positive impact on us, as a family. It enables Harry to have lots of fun whilst developing his social + independence skills… and it allows me some respite and 1:1 time with my daughter”
