There is a range of support, activities and opportunities available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families/carers.
InterAct is focussed on empowering children, young people, parents/carers to make informed choices/ decisions, putting families, children and young people at the heart of the decision making process in being able to take control and to exercise choice about what is provided and how. We offer support and expertise in meeting the needs of the child or young person and family/carers.
We work with and for people to empower families to build on their strengths and explore creative and individual sources of support, opportunity and activity.
Personal budgets are allocated when the child or young person has support needs which cannot be met without individual and additional funding. They are just one part of the wide and diverse support and opportunities available. It will be up to the family to decide whether or not they wish to receive some or all of their personal budget through a direct payment.
