About Mencap

Our Chief Executive, Jan Tregelles, has this to say about Our Leadership Way

“Through your leadership, you have influence over whether someoneday at work is interesting and inspiring or, conversely, boring and indifferent. Your actions (or inaction) can develop someone into an asset for Mencap and the people we support or a liability.Your leadership can challenge the powerful people or systems that get in the way of people having fair chances,or it can shy away from confrontation. Leadership is powerfulfor good and worse, and thats why this is so important.

We are all here for the same reasonto change the lives of people with a learning disability.

Our big plan sets out exactly how we are going to do this. But if were going to succeed, we need strong leaders. For more information, please see the attached document which provides an overview of Our Leadership Way.
