Leisure

Some people forget how important it is to just have fun!

At Mencap, we never forget and that’s why we put so much effort into making sure people with a learning disability have opportunities to get out, be active and have fun.

Whether it’s football in the park, DJ’ing, playing an instrument or getting creative with painting we want everyone to find something they enjoy – we’ll support you to find your passion.

Anything from evening classes or watching sport to taking a day trip with friends helps people enjoy themselves and learn new skills. We’ve even helped people realise their ambition of scuba diving and parachuting.

Develop and grow

We meet with people to arrange personally designed activities, where they can be supported on a one-to-one basis or in groups.

We also help people attend Mencap and other community groups.

And because our leisure services work closely with our Employ Me service, participation can lead to paid employment.
