Working in the local community
We think that working with local people and organisations in Warrington to think about all these issues will result in communities which are much more inclusive of people with a learning disability. We also believe that working in this way will result in a wider range of more sustainable local and personalised community support, which help people with a learning disability to live their lives. We think that this need not cost much money – much more for a lot less.
We want to use the Great Communities project to engage with local people, test all these assumptions, design new ways of working and demonstrate what is possible. This ground-breaking project will forge strong partnerships with Warrington Council and other key stakeholders to ensure this investment from MacIntyre has maximum impact locally. It will then act to ensure this local investment is a springboard to transformational national impact within the sector.
