About Us

Capture1.JPG

We are Mencap. We are passionate about changing the world for everyone with a learning disability.

Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers.

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. 


Our services

The services we provide range from round-the-clock care to helping someone join in with local leisure activities, providing advice and information on things like employment and education, helping someone to live independently for the first time, and even things like reporting a crime to the police.

In a nutshell, we try to help in any area of a person’s life where they need support.
