Let’s come together
This event is for parents, siblings and carers of the people we support.
We are happy to offer advice and support when you are looking for a suitable place. For an impartial view, take a look this ‘top tips’ document from VODG, the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group.
MacIntyre has a ‘welcome all’ approach and offers services for children, young people and adults who have a learning disability and/or autism. We have a number of different services including 24/7 support, support to live at home and a residential and day school in Buckinghamshire. In some areas of the country we offer further education support and daytime learning centre opportunities.
Anytime you wish. We encourage families to visit as often as both they and their relative would like. Aside from our Education services where it might not be suitable to visit during academic hours, there are no rules or restrictions for family visits.
Yes, absolutely! Bedrooms can be decorated to each individual’s tastes and preferences.
All of our staff undergo a thorough recruitment process which includes written and verbal references, Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Checks and a Health Assessment. We involve the people we support in the recruitment process wherever possible. All staff participate in regular Supervision meetings with their line manager.
A number of training courses are compulsory for all staff with other courses being determined by the needs of the service or the people living there. We also offer numerous Special Interest Groups on topics such as health, dementia, autism and positive behaviour support to ensure our staff always have the latest skills and industry knowledge.
All MacIntyre’s CQC reports are available by county on our website.
MacIntyre was established by the parents of a disabled child in 1966 for all people with a learning disability to live a life that makes sense to them.
Each month Nicola Payne, MacIntyre's Family Engagement Consultant, talks to special guests who share their insights and experiences.
