Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers.


There are an estimated 1.4 million people with a learning disability in the UK,  and there are 200 children born each week who will have a learning disability. They are among the most disadvantaged in today’s society. We exist to tackle the issues surrounding people with a learning disability, and to deliver high quality support and services to the people who need us. Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. We want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the things they want to out of life.


Your support this Christmas will allow us to help more children with a learning disability and their families through a personalised programme delivered by our Your Early Support (YES) team. Our specialist teams support children to interact with the world around them and develop social skills which will help them throughout their life. Without our help, children and their families can feel completely isolated, and on the verge of breaking point. So say YES to Mencap this Christmas and help more families give their children everything they need to lead a fulfilling life.
