MacIntyre is a leading national charity, highly respected and committed to setting standards and increasing choice. It was established in 1966 by a parent's determination to provide education for his disabled child. In 2012, MacIntyre Academies Trust was set up as a separate organisation to add to this work.
MacIntyre’s philosophy has always been to welcome all and service delivery is underpinned by what it calls its DNA. Through the promotion of Great Interactions and Person Centred Approaches, MacIntyre aims to give each and every individual a life that makes sense to them, with a level and style of support of their choosing. This commitment is made to each person supported and staff are trained and expected to work in a facilitative way, providing individualised support and regularly checking that each person supported is living their life, their way.
The charity provides learning, education and support for over 1000 children and adults with learning disabilities, at more than 130 MacIntyre services across the England and Wales. With a long and established track record of delivering outstanding provision for children with special educational needs, MacIntyre actively supports joint working between the charity and the Trust.
