Our Team

The InterAct team comprises over 200 professional actors who have been trained to work in the sensitive environments of hospital wards and stroke clubs. Not all actors are suited to such work and each prospective performer is interviewed at the charity's Head Office and then monitored by the charity's Training Co-ordinator.
