We work in partnership with people with a learning disability, and all our services support people to live life as they choose.
Our work includes:
• providing high-quality, flexible services that allow people to live as independently as possible in a place they choose
• providing advice through our helplines and websites
• campaigning for the changes that people with a learning disability want.
We have strong relations with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. Our local groups are individual charities in their own right, but we work closely with them to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support locally as well as nationally.
Mencap work with people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose. Mencap offer a range of services, such as residential/ day care services and leisure groups and advice about respite care, individual budgets or transport services.
