The MacIntyre DNA is the way that we talk about the essence of MacIntyre.

Sarah Burslem
MacIntyre CEO

Our values are defined in the MacIntyre DNA which was refreshed in 2022, but is shaped by the visionary belief of our founder, Ken Newton Wright’s, of the “learning potential of people with learning disabilities, their value as individuals, their right to equality and their importance to society”.

Our Mission

We will support a sense of wellbeing through a celebration of each person’s unique gifts, talents and contributions, the quality of our relationships and ensuring the promotion of real opportunities to connect with others.

Our Purpose

To achieve excellence in everything we do

MacIntyre’s primary purpose is to make a positive contribution to the lives of children and adults with disabilities. We make this contribution by ensuring that all our interactions are great, that our knowledge and skills represent excellence and that we support people to develop purposeful and warm relationships.

Our secondary purpose is to have a positive influence in our local communities and on our sector by connecting well, nurturing partnerships and demonstrating best practice.

MacIntyre Corporate Strategy

We launched our strategy “Proud of our past and ambitious for our future” in 2016 at the start of what was a momentous Jubilee year. Since then, we have reflected further to ensure that our plans remain strong and that the views and aspirations of disabled people and their families shape what we do, how we do it and that we continue to strive to achieve excellence.

Our Corporate Strategy details how we empower the people we support to achieve beyond their potential, inspire and engage our staff of today and the future, build a culture of excellence and grow MacIntyre with integrity and robust financial planning.
