Mencap is the 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. We want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the things they want out of life.

  • We deliver a wide range of practical support services, transforming the lives of children, young people, men and women with a learning disability and their families. 
  • We help people with a learning disability to speak out about the things that are important to them and enhance the skills and capacity of our local membership network.
  • We challenge attitudes and assumptions about learning disability and involve people from different backgrounds and communities in our work.
