Include a gift to Mencap in your will

Help people with a learning disability

More than half of our voluntary income comes from gifts in wills, and without your generosity Mencap wouldn’t be able to help as many people with a learning disability as it does.

Among the activities that gifts in wills funds includes our campaigns and the Mencap Direct helpline.

When you are making your will, your family and friends come first. But through leaving a gift, big or small, to Mencap you can make a massive difference in helping people with a learning disability live independent and fulfilled lives.
