MACS Supporting Children & Young People

MACS Supporting Children and Young People 

MACS was established in 1990 to provide a range of services for young people. Since then, we have succeeded in developing an approach which is effective and sustainable. The values and ethos of our organisation, particularly our approach to participation, are at the centre of this success. We work with children and young people (aged 11–25) who haven’t had a fair deal. They may be experiencing homelessness, substance abuse, self-harm, mental health issues, leaving care or they are generally at risk. Our core services are Supported Housing, Floating Support, Wellbeing Support and Participation.

Why Work for us?

Our Culture..

“At MACS young people are at the heart of what we do. We encourage an interdependent way of living. We see the value in making mistakes. We actively encourage personal and professional development so that our young people and staff can reach their fullest potential”.

  • Interdependence: MACS recognize that as social creatures, we cannot exist totally independently from others.
  • Personal Growth and Development: We invest in our staff and young people, challenge their thinking and encourage training to increase skills and knowledge.
  • Risk Taking and Making Mistakes: Our ethos and belief is that it is OK to make mistakes and by examining what went wrong, we can improve and use the learning.
  • Self Determination and Autonomy: MACS employ experienced and skilled staff that we trust to make appropriate decisions to work effectively and safely with our young people.
  • Judging Others: MACS recognizes that judgements are natural, however we ensure that ours are examined and explored in a way that results in a positive outcome for all.
  • Communication: We have a friendly, relaxed, engaging and warm attitude that fosters positive communication between young people and the organization as a whole.
  • Trust and Integrity: We earn trust from young people and other professionals by consistently delivering top quality services, underpinned by a core value of trust and integrity.
  • Involving yourself: MACS welcomes input from all staff and young people and encourages participation in having your say and embracing new opportunities.
