Mencap is the voice of learning disability. Everything Mencap does 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 and services, challenge prejudice and directly support thousands of people to live their lives as they choose. There isn't room to list everything we do here, but there's loads of information on our website

Thanks for visiting our page.

To continue the feel good British vibe, post the Olympics and during the Paralympics, we're taking to an open pond like ducks to water to raise money for a ruddy good cause (an in an Olympic venue no less!)

The Synchronised Swimmers:
Ellen Goodey
Katy Palmer

On September 30th we will all be swimming the Mencap Mile in Dorney Lake and we've set ourselves a modest target of £1,000 as its all for a good cause.

So please dig deep and muster up what you can.

We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
