Why volunteer with Mencap?  

A lot of people with a learning disability don't have many people in their lives that aren't paid to be there.

We want to work with volunteers who are as passionate about supporting people with a learning disability as we are. It's not only a chance to do something great, it's also an opportunity to develop new skills and experience, as well as make new friends.

Volunteer to change a life today

By sharing new experiences together you can  change the life of someone with a learning disability.
