About Mencap

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. Our challenge is to make this world a reality.

Volunteering with Mencap is YOUR opportunity to help us achieve this, whilst having the chance to develop your skills, meet new people and join a passionate and dedicated team.
