MacIntyre Great Communities
MacIntyre is a national charity providing support and making a positive contribution to the lives of people with learning disabilities for over 50 years. With considerable investment from MacIntyre, Community Catalysts and MacIntyre have formed an exciting partnership, working together to design and deliver the ground-breaking Great Communities project.
Starting in Warrington and now also in Worcestershire, the project works with people supported by MacIntyre to help them to enhance their own lives and make a contribution to their community. In a time of austerity and cuts in services, the project also acts as a catalyst for change to make places more connected and inclusive and to stop people with a learning disability falling through the net.
Lessons learned and approaches developed are being used to underpin wider, organisational and national transformational change within the sector.
