Helping young people reach their goals.
Support the campaign
Thank you for all of your support during Learning Disability Week. It has made a great difference but there is still more to be done. Find out how you can continue to show your support for the Stand by me campaign:
We are asking police services to show support for people with a learning disability who are victims of hate crime by adopting the 'Stand by me' promises.
Ask your police service to stand by people with a learning disability and put an end to hate crime.
We want all police services to promise to stand by people with a learning disability to end hate crime.
Mencap wants police services in the UK, including local police stations and other police bodies to sign up to the 'Stand by me' police promise.
