Make a difference with us
Founded in 1946, Mencap is more than just a charity – we’re a national movement that’s been helping to improve the lives of people with a learning disability, and their families and carers, for 70 years.
Why your support matters
As a potential new corporate partner, your support is vital to us being able to achieve our aims of a fairer and better society for the people we’re here to help.
We work with businesses across the UK to create partnerships that are mutually beneficial, and that deliver real change for people with a learning disability and their families and carers.
- There are currently around 1.4 million people in the UK with a learning disability needing support to live the lives they choose – people just like Vicky (read her story below)
- We help people to live independently, to engage in meaningful activities and, when possible, find paid work opportunities
- We provide advice and support online and on the phone, and campaign for real change in society to against the discrimination people with a learning disability sometimes face
Why choose us?
Each of our partnerships is unique. We want to explore the different ways we can work together to find a partnership that works for everyone.
We’re the largest learning disability charity in the UK, and run services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland – giving us national coverage and a presence in communities up and down the country. We also have a sister charity, Enable Scotland, ensuring that when you choose Mencap as your corporate partner you are getting a national organisation.
