How does The Big Give Christmas Challenge Work?

  • In September we secured £1,700 in pledges
  • In December we are seeking to secure donations totalling £1,700 to release the pledges, giving a total of £3,400

How will my gift be used?

Every penny raised during this Challenge will be used to develop family support sessions, workshops and co-produced resources to help families feel more equipped, empowered and better connected. The sessions and workshops are intended to reduce isolation by creating peer support networks and providing a safe space for discussions. In addition we are providing training and support for our staff teams to better support families.

MacIntyre’s Family Project was set up in 2019 and is funded entirely by charitable donations

MacIntyre was established by the parents of a disabled child with the vision for all people with a learning disability to live a life that makes sense to them.

Since then working with parents, carers and families has been at the heart of our approach to supporting children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism and ensuring we continue to achieve that vision.

Meeting other families and hearing their fears and struggles makes you realise you are not alone in having these issues and that there are people there to help, even if it’s just to listen.
