You could help children like Laura

"My name is Gráinne, and I’m Laura’s mum. She’s 3 years old, loves singing and dancing, and she also has Down’s syndrome."
"Just 12 months ago, Laura couldn't walk or talk, and we didn’t know if she ever would.  After just a year of Mencap support, our Laura is able to walk independently - in fact, she took her first steps at the Mencap centre!"
"So much of the groundwork for it happened there, so I think it was only right that she took those first steps at the centre along with the people who fought so hard to get her there."
