mencap society

Founded in 1946, the Mencap Society has been helping to change society for the better, fighting for equality for people with a learning disability.


Their 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.


Mencap have strong relations with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. These local groups are individual charities in their own right and work with Mencap to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support locally as well as nationally.
