Independent Support Essex – (iSEssex)

InterAct is delighted to be leading Independent Support Essex (iSEssex) to deliver the Independent Support service across Essex. This is a new partnership between InterAct and local voluntary organisations Families InFocus (Essex), ecdp, and the parent/carer forum FACE (Families Acting for Change in Essex). We provide trained Independent Supporters to work directly with young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities aged 0-25, and their parents, as they go through the new assessment process for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan). Free service.
