Company Profile - Mencap

We work in partnership with people with a learning disability, and all our services support people to live life as they choose.


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.


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 out of life.


Our values:


• Being people centred.
• Empowering, including and respecting all people.
• Challenging wrong ways of thinking about learning disability.
• Transforming lives.
• Being brave and developing new ideas.


Our mission is how we seek to deliver our vision. We strive to promote change on three levels:


1. To change society’s attitude and culture.
2. To influence people who shape policy and practice.
3. To empower and directly support more individuals to live fulfilled lives.


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.


• We support people with a learning disability to get a job or take a college course, or we can help them find a place of their own to live in
• We offer advice about things like respite care, individual budgets or transport services
• We run residential/day care services and leisure groups that are so important to so many people with a learning disability, and their families and supporters
• We support people with a learning disability to be part of their local communities
• We lobby the government to change laws so that more and more people with a learning disability can have control over their own lives.
