Include a gift to Mencap in your will

When you are making your will, your first concern will naturally be for your own family and friends, but if you can also remember Mencap we are extremely grateful.

Over half of our voluntary income comes from gifts left in wills, and it's no exaggeration to say that we simply couldn't manage without them. Without the generosity of thousands of supporters since 1946, Mencap would not be the organisation that it is today. Gifts in wills have been crucial to the significant progress that Mencap has made over the years - but our work is far from complete.  

Not only campaigning for change, Mencap is also the biggest provider of services that support people with a learning disability and their families and carers in their daily lives.

Your gift, whatever the size, can make a massive difference in giving people with a learning disability opportunities they may not otherwise have had.
