Mencap is the leading 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 are Mencap

We support thousands of people with a learning disability to do the things they love. 

What we think

Our vision statements set out what we think on some key areas of life, what the issues are and what we want, and how we can get there together.

Donate to Mencap

There are currently 118,500 children in the UK with a learning disability. Without the right support from the start, many of these children will face an extremely challenging future.

By donating to Mencap you will directly be helping people with a learning disability develop skills and gain confidence to live a fulfilling and active life.
