Why volunteer with Mencap?  

A lot of people with a learning disability don't have many people in their lives that aren't paid to be there.

We want to work with volunteers who are as passionate about supporting people with a learning disability as we are. It's not only a chance to do something great, it's also an opportunity to develop new skills and experience, as well as make new friends.

Volunteer to change a life today

By sharing new experiences together you can  change the life of someone with a learning disability. 


We are:

  • positive about volunteering making a difference
  • caring about the people who volunteer with us
  • trustworthy as a provider of volunteering opportunities
  • challenging about unfair attitudes in society about learning disability
  • inclusive of people from all backgrounds.

Does that sound like you? If so, please have a look at our volunteering opportunities.


If you're not sure what's right for you, just fill in our easy form here! Someone from our volunteering team will be in touch with some great opportunities soon.
