We don't have a 'standard' approach at Mencap - all our personal support and services start with us spending time to understand you as an individual.

Our support begins with you

Whether you are looking to find your first paid job, move into your own place, find leisure activities in your local area, or you need advice on an issue that's important to you, we can help.

If you have a learning disability and want to know how we can support you, you can find out more about the services we offer by looking through the easy read guides in each area of this section. 

If you are a parent, family member or carer to someone with a learning disability, browse our topics to see how we can support your loved one with services that put them first.
