Scott Mackintosh – supporting wellbeing through the PSHE school curriculum
Scott is a joint owner of, and Director in The Methodology Group, a group of companies working specifically in data analytics, digital transformation and technology platforms.
A serial entrepreneur, Scott has launched multiple successful businesses over the years but his aim now is to become more philanthropic. As well as his involvement with The Jordan Legacy CIC, Scott is also a Director of Sight Loss Innovation, a trading company of Henshaws, a northern charity supporting people living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities.
Scott believes that the challenge for charities, particularly post Covid, is not just to remain relevant, but to remain sustainable – trading helpful knowledge is a way of doing both, which ensures the mission of reducing social isolation and to increase the independence of those living with a visual impairment or other disabilities is delivered for a very long time – . a very similar mission to that of the The Jordan Legacy CIC.
Scott joined the team at The Jordan Legacy because of his shared values, philosophies and goals in wanting to design and deliver optimal mental health and help reduce suicide. Reflecting on Jordan’s life and what took him to that tragic moment in 2019, Scott thought about his own kids, especially his son who has Sensory Processing Disorder, which often causes him to feel anxious and stressed. His fear is that if we don’t create a positive and inclusive environment for our young and vulnerable community, more will end up at that same moment Jordan found himself.
Scott’s primary focus within The Jordan Legacy will be to support the PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics) school curriculum, by delivering engaging project based talks and seminars in schools throughout the region – something he’s been actively involved in for a number of years.
Scott is a family man, married to Laura for 20 years and a doting dad to Isabella (Issy), Ellis, Marielle (Mimi) and Leonora (Lenny) the English Bulldog!* He’s also a proud Scot, who wears his kilt at every opportunity!
