Mencap Liverpool is the local Mencap group supporting people with a learning disability and their families in the Liverpool area.
We are affiliated to national Mencap but we don’t receive any funding from them or from the council, so we rely on the amazing fundraising efforts of people like you. As we’re a small charity the money you raise will make a huge difference to the lives of people we support.
Most people with a learning disability are treated as ‘different’. They do not have the same control over their own lives as the rest of our society and face challenges and prejudice every day. We help give people the control they should have by providing outreach support; information and advice; career coaching; volunteering opportunities; befriending; help to establish circles of support; and work experience placements. We campaign and influence to give people with a learning disability a fair chance to live a normal life without fear of prejudice.
The money you raise will enable us to empower individuals whilst helping their support network to grow in number and in confidence.
Thank you for your support!
