Mencap is the leading UK charity for people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. For the many thousands of people with learning disabilities in the UK, every stage in life is a battle. A battle to secure the same opportunities and rights as everyone else.


A baby born with a syndrome so rare it doesn’t even have a name. Parents struggling to cope with the shock of hearing their child has a learning disability. A teenage girl being bullied and excluded at school because she is different. A man with a learning disability who loses his home, carer and best friend when his mum passes away.


For 70 years, Mencap has been the voice of people with learning disabilities. Over that time, we’ve challenged prejudice, changed unfair laws and improved vital services. Today, we provide essential support and advice to almost 80,000 people and their families. None of this work is possible without the kindness of our supporters. And for many, the most lasting and meaningful way to help is to leave a gift to Mencap in their Wills. More than half of everything we do is funded by these extra-special gifts. Without them, thousands of children, young people and adults with learning disabilities would have no one to support them, no one to speak up for them, no one to fight their cause. These wonderful gifts can change lives and create a lifetime of possibilities for people with learning disabilities.
