Since 1966 parents, carers and families have been at the heart of our approach to supporting children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism. Earlier this year, following a charitable donation, we were delighted to invest in new roles to support our vision to work closely with families of the people we support.
We sat down with Family Engagement Consultant, Nicola Payne, to discuss her new role and the impact this will have on families of the people we support.
“Hello, everyone my name is Nicky for those how do not know me. I have been working at MacIntyre for the past 13 years. I would like to formally introduce my new role at MacIntyre as Family Engagement Consultant. This is a new post within MacIntyre and I am really excited to be part of this. My role will focus on building new relationships with families and nurturing existing relationships. I will be working closely with families and people we support, as well as driving our family strategy. To do this, I will be helping to guide existing relationships and exploring new ways to ensure the views of families are heard. Over the next few weeks and months you will start to hear more from me. We have a busy time ahead and I am positive in the near future I will have so much to share with you all. Watch this space!”
