Meet some of our beneficiaries

Mencap Trust Company provides a trust service to over 240 beneficiaries, of which the youngest is 1, and the oldest, 81

Our 240+ beneficiaries range from people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, to people holding down part-time jobs. We thoroughly enjoy building relationships with each beneficiary and the important people in their lives.


Micah is one of our beneficiaries. Now family and friends can think of Michah and make gifts for his future without endangering him. His mum, Leonora, explains why she set up a trust for Micah.


Tonda explains how her trust helps her and says, “it feels good”, and Tonda’s mum Cindy talks about her own peace of mind, and the comfort she gains from seeing the trust in practice.
