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. 

Support the #StopSleepInCrisis campaign

Government changes to 'sleep-in' payments are threatening to take away vital support from thousands of disabled people. 

The care sector has been landed with a massive £400 million bill and many providers now face bankruptcy. This could mean the end of social care as we know it. 

Please sign our petition to #StopSleepInCrisis by urging the Government to fix this problem, which they have created.

The future care of the most vulnerable people in our society must be protected.

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.

We are Mencap

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

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.

Donate to Mencap today to help people with a learning disability shine.
