‘MILTON Keynes – offering the widest range of opportunities for people with learning disabilities’ is at the heart of MacIntyre’s philosophy, and this was demonstrated when the catering team from the Great Holm lifelong learning centre visited No 10 Downing Street.
They were there to provide catering services for a reception, hosted by Samantha Cameron and held in support of the Milton Keynes-based charity. More than 80 invited guests joined staff to mark the creation of Family Footings – an exciting new project for the families of children with learning disabilities that helps parents understand and negotiate the special education system by using simple planning tools that bring the family together to work out what is best for the child and the family.
Brenda Mullen, MacIntyre’s Director of Children’s Services said: “We are thrilled the catering team were able to be part of this event, and grateful to Mrs Cameron for giving us this unique opportunity to present Family Footings to our sector partners.
“Family Footings is an important development in providing practical support for parents and families and so ensuring the best possible outcomes for children with disabilities.”
