Help us create a better future
When Lord Brian Rix’s daughter was born with Down’s syndrome in 1951, doctors advised him to ‘put her away and forget her’.
Instead, he fought alongside Mencap for the next 60 years to improve the lives of people with a learning disability. Despite all he achieved, people with a learning disability still face fundamental challenges; including isolation, loneliness, hate crime and poorer healthcare.
But he proved we can all help change the future and with a gift in your Will to Mencap you can too.Download your guide
