Referral required
Referral Details

Interakt does not require a referral as our sessions are for everyone and if an individual has very complex needs then with support from WBC Adult Social Care a specific care plan will be commissioned. 

Other notes

For those transitioning from College to Adult Social Care contact WBC Adult Social Care and request a list from the transitioning team which will have details of Day Providers, their activities, sessions, days and times.  Remember that your provision is your choice therefor make time to research and book a free taster session with those providers which you want to explore further.  For those already in the Adult Social Care sector who require another service from a different provider to what they already have, contact Adult Social Care and ask to speak to your social worker or care manager with your query or request.  The most important thing is for each individual to access a service that is of their own choice that each individual is informed of a variety of provisions in order to make an informed choice which works best for them.
