People with a learning disability are among the most excluded people in today’s society. Most are treated as ‘different’ and do not have the same control over their own lives as other members of our society.  That’s why Mencap is here. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers.

Your gift will help Mencap to change laws and services, challenge prejudice and support thousands of people with a learning disability to live their lives as they choose.

£5 a month could help fund a training session for someone with a learning disability to learn how to use the bus on their own giving them confidence and independence.

£10 a month could provide the parents and carers of a person with a learning disability vital support and advice through Mencap’s Learning Disability Helpline.

£15 a month could pay for a child with a learning disability to attend a specialist workshop to learn sign language, so they can communicate with their families and friends.
