Who we are
Thank you for supporting the work of Dacorum Mencap.
Dacorum Mencap is a small local charity supporting the families of people affected by a learning disability in Dacorum. We run three schemes for adults.
- 1:1 befriending through the Friendship Scheme
- Group based activities through our ROAR scheme
- A monthly Gateway Club
All the schemes help adults with learning disabilities to develop and maintain friendships; get out and about; learn new skills; and experience a range of different activities, whilst at the same time, their unpaid carers receive a welcome break.
The ROAR scheme aims to provide 2 - 3 activities per week, they include pub meets and meals out; short courses and classes; sporting activities and thrilling experiences; weekends away and holidays; theatre and day trips.
Our members are supported by trained, vetted and supported volunteers, which means that our activities are all affordable.
