Mencap's latest annual report
We are proud of all of our colleagues at Mencap for delivering another year of incredible achievements for people with a learning disability A learning disability is to do with the way someone's brain works. It makes it harder for someone to learn, understand or do things. . We have continued to support people in so many different ways, helping them into work, campaigning, providing information and advice and working to make communities all over the UK accessible Accessible means something is easy for people to use or join in with. For example: Accessible writing means the writing is easy to read and understand. .
We will not stop until the UK is the best place for people with a learning disability to live happy and healthy lives.
You’ll see from the report that this year was also difficult in many ways. Social care in the UK is a challenging environment to work in and our workforce is stretched and underfunded by national budgets. We are very grateful for the difference they make to the lives of people with a learning disability and the hard work they do to maintain the quality of our services.
