More and better short breaks
Through our Breaking Point campaign Mencap is calling for more and better short breaks for families caring for people with a learning disability. The government has promised 200 extra short breaks for families by 2011. Find out more about the Breaking Point campaign.
Cuts in services
Inadequate funding for community based services means that people with a learning disability may not be getting the services they need and want.
