Feel like you’re changing people’s lives.

Feel like you’re changing society. Feel part of something big. And feel like you’re doing something that really matters – and that’s really worth it.

This is what working at Mencap feels like. And if your mind is already made up about applying, then don’t let us get in your way. But if you’d like to know a bit more about us first – particularly the values we stand for, and the ways in which we’ll reward you for the amazing work you’ll do here – then you’ll find the answers on this site.

More than a job

Because of who we are, what we do, and how we do it, working here is never just a job – you’ll find it’s so much more. It’s a commitment to people with a learning disability, and to your colleagues. It’s an incredible learning experience, and an opportunity to build relationships that last. It means more. It demands more. And it’ll see you grow as a person, a professional, a leader and an activist.

Like we said, it’s more than a job.

Volunteer with us

Feeling like you want to do more with your spare time? Whatever your skills and hobbies, and however much time you have to commit, you could become part of our amazing work.

You could become a person with a learning disability’s Sidekick. Or make a weekly commitment to one of our projects or services. Or just take one day a year to cheer on our plucky marathon runners. Or chip in with some admin, gardening or campaigning. There are so many ways to get involved. And they contribute to the one thing we’re all here for – changing people’s lives for the better.
