Pinpoint (Disabled Children Register) and Max Card

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.
