MacIntyre No Limits: Sam’s story

Giving a young person the best start in life is essential. MacIntyre No Limits truly instils this, by providing a bespoke educational package in partnership with local colleges and schools. The service works with young people and their families to deliver a tailored, inclusive and educational solution, enabling young people with learning disabilities to access the services they need.

In the latest No Limits case study, Sam tells his story.

Sam has been supported by No Limits since he started his course at Milton Keynes College in 2013. Now in his fourth and final year completing his Supported Internship course, Sam not only undertakes a work placement at the college two days per week but now also lives and travels independently.

Reflecting on his progress and achievements in the last four years, Sam says:

“I am so happy that I have been given the opportunity to continue learning at college. I have learned a lot and met some amazing people. I’ve had my own place for nearly a year now and I really love it, and being able to travel independently has also made a huge difference to my life.”

Andy Jeffs, Programme Coordinator, No Limits, has also witnessed a remarkable change in Sam.

“Quite simply, Sam has achieved more in four years than some people achieve in fifteen years – the scale and pace at which he has progressed is incredible. Being able to not only travel independently but to live independently too is a huge accomplishment; there is no limit for Sam so we’re looking forward to seeing what he sets his sights on next.”
