My story

[p]Thank you for reading our page. On April 26th 2020 Tomas and I will be running the London Marathon together for Mencap. This charity has helped and supported Tom and us over the years. Having a learning disability impacts on so much more than getting a job and and living independently. For Tom it can be a struggle to be accepted in society. For our family Mencap has been there supporting us through the teenage years by running youth clubs and social activities which were a lifeline for us and Tom. Right now they are supporting us while we start to look for Tom to live independently. Advising us on financial issues for Tom and types of accommodation to look for. For Tom the disco once a month which they run is a great way to meet up with friends. [/p][p]Thank you in advance for your generous donation. We are very very grateful for your support. [/p][p]Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life with almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spending less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday. [/p][p]They face barriers finding a job, accessing activities in their local community and receiving good quality healthcare. We tackle these issues head on by providing support in a way that meets individual needs and encourages greater independence. [/p][p]We give expert advice and information that empowers people and their families. And we campaign relentlessly for changes that brings greater equality for people with a learning disability.[/p][p]By supporting Team Mencap you will be helping us to support people with a learning disability to live the life they choose, and do the things they love.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Mencap. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
