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.
The services we provide range from round-the-clock care to helping someone join in with local leisure activities, providing advice and information on things like employment and education, helping someone to live independently for the first time, and even things like reporting a crime to the police.
In a nutshell, we try to help in any area of a person’s life where they need support.
People with a learning disability need to have their voices heard. At Mencap, we make sure all our work is guided by them.
Our vision statement shows that we want people with a learning disability to be listened to and included in all aspects of life.
Successful campaigns like Hear My Voice show that the personal experiences of people with a learning disability are influencing all parts of Mencap’s work.
