PACT aims to support and empower disabled children and young people by working creatively and collaboratively to deliver a wide-ranging programme of direct services and accredited training.
The project's overriding focus is supporting disabled children and young people to have their views, wishes and feelings heard and acted upon in response to the challenges they experience in their own lives and in a way which has a national and local impact.
PACT has worked with local authorities and other agencies in nine government regions to improve the quality of shared decision-making and partnership working with disabled children and young people.
This initiative, funded by the Department of Education, was delivered in partnership with the DAP and Solihull projects. Disabled young people have helped shape and design services for City of York Council and have representation on strategic partnership groups.
The Transition Support Programme funded a new toolkit developed at PACT in consultation with disabled young people who are moving into adult life. The toolkit aims to support disabled young people in transition to communicate their wishes and feelings.
