Meet our charity partner

Please scan the barcode to donate to our charity partner Mencap.

Mencap is the leading charity for the 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability, their families and carers. Their vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for people with a learning disability to live happy and healthy lives. They: 

  • Provide personal support services
  • Campaign locally and nationally for what people with a learning disability want
  • Empower people, groups and organisations to create real change in their own communities  
  • Help people with a learning disability to gain employment
  • Provide information and advice for all areas of their lives 
  • Conduct research into important issues to create real change 

However, more changes are urgently needed as people with a learning disability still face unacceptable inequalities on a daily basis:

  • Almost half of deaths amongst people with a learning disability last year were avoidable. 
  • Women with a learning disability on average die 26 years younger than those in the general population, and men 22 years younger. 
  • Around 40% of people with a disability experience a mental health problem

People with a learning disability can live long and happy lives just like anyone else, but Mencap needs your help to make it a reality.
