Independent Support Essex – (iSEssex)

InterAct is delighted to be leading Independent Support Essex (iSEssex), to deliver the Independent Support service across Essex.

Please call the helpline 01245 608300 for initial information about the assessment and planning processes for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). and the EHCP Annual Review.

EHCPs have now replaced SEN Statements.

Trained Independent Supporters from InterAct and Families InFocus (Essex) can then work directly with young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities aged 0-25, and their parents, as they go through the assessment process for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or during the EHCP Annual Review process.

Independent Support Essex also offer a range of workshops, for schools and local groups, to help parents and young people prepare for One Planning and the EHCP process. Please see our menu and further details of our EHCP Workshops for Parents/Carers.

Independent Support is a free service.
