As of 15 December 2020, registration for Pinpoint, and updating existing information will be temporarily closed, as we are moving to a new system. We will be contacting you shortly with information on how to sign up to the new system. If you have any questions please contact us via email fisdigital@buckinghamshire.gov.uk or phone 01296 382246. 

We will not be issuing new or replacement Max Cards until the new register is live. All Max Card requests received up to today have been issued.


What is Pinpoint?

Pinpoint is aimed at parents or carers of disabled children and young people. It is the Disabled Children's Register for Buckinghamshire. This secure, voluntary database captures information about children and young people aged 0 to 19 years with special educational needs and disabilities who live in Buckinghamshire (or are the responsibility of the Local Authority). The information, such as types of disabilities, ages and locations, helps to plan, monitor and develop appropriate facilities and services for disabled children and their families.

It is free to register. All information is used anonymously and you can choose to receive a free Max Card for discounted family days out. We encourage as many people as possible to sign up so that we can get a clear picture of the need for services in Buckinghamshire. The information is also important for Adult Services to support disabled young people in their transition to adulthood.

To register for Pinpoint you must live in the Buckinghamshire Council Local Authority area. If you are unsure if your address is within the Council area, you can check by entering your postcode into the Find your local council tool on GOV.UK.
