About Mencap

Mencap is the leading learning disability charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We work with people with a learning disability and their families to challenge prejudice and change laws, and we directly support thousands of people to live their lives as they choose.

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.


Job Advert

Drummond Court is home to a number of people with learning disabilities living in a selection of bungalows, houses or flats. They are looking for someone to volunteer to keep their garden areas tidy.

One person in particular likes to potter in the garden and spends most days in the garden keeping the green areas spick and span.

While we would like the people we support to have direct contact with our volunteers, they and staff are aware that social distancing is still very important.
