Who we are
Our merger with mcch
The charities mcch and Choice Support have merged to become one organisation.
We have kept the name Choice Support, because it describes what we do and we are already well known across England.
The charity mcch may no longer exist, but as Choice Support we're still supporting all the same people that mcch did previously. We are now a much bigger organisation working across much of England.
Oliver Mills, Chair of Choice Support’s Board of Trustees, says:
“This merger enables us to consolidate what we already do, and to look to the future with fresh vision and energy. All existing services are being maintained and delivered to the highest possible standards, with no cuts. At the same time we are embarking on new initiatives to further improve the support we offer, including engaging with the Transforming Care programme, and developing new technology to help people with learning disabilities live more independent lives.”
A lot of good things have happened as the two organisations have come together over the previous year or so. Sarah Maguire, Chief Executive
Sarah Maguire continues:
"We’ve already been awarded a £1.7 million grant to work in partnership with a CCG and local authority in Yorkshire, to create 6 new bespoke homes for people who have been living in hospital for years. We are currently working on a similar project in Nottinghamshire. And we’re working with local authorities across the country to introduce Individual Service Funds.”
