Mencap welcomes any group that is interested in or involved with learning disability.
There are many benefits of affiliating to Mencap:
- We will promote your group and services through our ‘find a local group' page on our website. This is one of the most popular pages on the website and every month is viewed about 12,000 times.
- You will have access to local groups online, a private area on our website where groups can share information with each other and access Mencap policies and publications.
- Our staff will give you support, advice and information.
- Branded groups can use the Mencap and Gateway names, and have access to our online branded toolkit to create newsletters, posters, leaflets and letterheads.
- You will get access to Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) checks for groups in England and Wales and AccessNI checks for groups in Northern Ireland.
Thanks to help and advice from Mencap's grants team we have received over £100,000 in grants, plus Lottery funding. This money is making a huge difference to the support we can provide to people with a learning disability and their families.
