Change their world

Many people with a learning disability face inequality in every area of life, every day. They are ignored, denied education and refused jobs. But you have the power to change their world by leaving a gift to Mencap in your Will.

At Mencap we campaign relentlessly at a national level. We fight for every child to have the best start in life, and for every adult to receive the right education, healthcare and employment.

With your support, we won't stop until we've changed the world for every person with a learning disability.
