About Mencap

Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. We work with people with a learning disability to change laws, challenge prejudice and support them to live their lives as they choose.

 

As you’ll know, ever since we were founded back in 1946 we’ve been helping to change society for the better, fighting for equality for people with a learning disability.

 

Our vision 

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. Our challenge, alongside people with a learning disability and their families, is to make this world a reality.

Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life. We need to tackle the issues head on through tireless campaigning and the delivery of high quality support and services to the people who need us.  

 

Our mission

Our mission is to change society’s attitudes, influence people who shape policy and practice, and to empower and directly support more individuals to lead fulfilled lives. Our big plan is divided into five priorities. These are the areas of life we want to have the biggest impact on, the areas where there is the most need to see change for the better.

  1. Raising awareness and changing attitudes
  2. Making a difference to the lives of people with a learning disability here and now
  3. Supporting friendships and relationships
  4. Improving health for people with a learning disability
  5. Giving children the best start in life.
