'Mencap support people with a learning disability to live their lives as they choose. Our Manchester base provides specialist support to help people with a learning disability to gain paid employment'
Our other work includes: providing high-quality, flexible services that allow people to live as independently as possible in a place they choose, providing advice through our helplines and websites, campaigning for the changes that people with a learning disability want.
We have strong relations with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. Our local groups are individual charities in their own right, but we work closely with them to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support locally as well as nationally.
