The Actio Consortium
Actio is a consortium made up of PACC (Shropshire’s Parent Carer Forum) and Energize. These organisations came together to help improve and develop the community activity offer within Shropshire for children and young people aged 0-25 with SEND, and their families. After conducting research, Actio has a good understanding of the challenges faced by providers of activity opportunities and the barriers faced by families in accessing them.
As a consortium, Actio’s aim is to improve the range, quality, and access to activities to help children and young people with SEND thrive in Shropshire. Actio want to see an offer that supports SEND children and young people to develop their social skills, physical health, work towards their individual identified outcomes and importantly to have some fun.
Actio is really excited to have been commissioned by Shropshire Council to deliver the All In non-assessed social care provision offer having secured funding for a contract delivery term of April 2021 to March 2024. Over the course of three years Actio wants to work more closely with families and providers to improve develop an improved support offer, and expand the range of opportunities available across Shropshire.
Actio is really important to PACC because it enables us the engage with many more families and to hear their experiences, as well as helping to strengthen the Shropshire SEND community. You can find out more about Actio and its offer to Shropshire SEND families on the Actio website
