We are thrilled to announce that MacIntyre has been awarded not one, but two awards at the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards on Friday.
The National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards celebrate excellence in the support for people living with learning disabilities. The awards recognise individuals and teams who make a difference and provide quality care.
Following their successful judging day in May, the Dementia Project Team secured the ‘Team Award’, whilst the Haddon’s Staff Team were presented the ‘Supporting Older People With Learning Disabilities Award.’
Responding to the work of the Dementia Project Team, the judges said
“Exceptional work mixing lived experience, sharing positively and helping to develop resources. The team are outstandingly fabulous and strive to make dementia something not to be scared of. They show so much enthusiasm even after personal loss. A wonderful demonstration of team working.”
The judges also described the team from the Haddons in Milton Keynes as showing:
“Creativity, determination and passion to develop and co-produce responsive support for people with learning disabilities as they age were at the heart of this team, who recognised that as we change - the support we need also changes.”
Sarah Burslem, MacIntyre’s CEO added:
“Well done for the outstanding achievements of the Dementia Project Team and the Haddons Team, both worthy winners.”
