Our impact

Our vision is that all people with a learning disability, their families and carers, are valued, included, respected within society, and have the opportunity to live the life they choose.

We take pride in our values and the way we work. We aim to be welcoming, open, responsive and aspirational.

On average we have over 2,000 attendees to our centre every year. In an average year we directly help over 400 families, children and young people to be connected, get the support they need, make the most of opportunities to learn and develop and have a full and active life.

What people say about us

“The support I get from the staff is difficult to explain; whatever me or my son needs, they find a way to help. We cannot thank the staff enough.”

“Leeds Mencap has made a huge impact on my son’s and my own life. The friendly, helpful, and advisory role they play in a family setup is amazing.”

“I really look forward to attending the Siblings group each week. It is a friendly, warm and welcoming place. No one judges each other and everyone gets along well and has fun.”

“The family support worker has helped me emotionally and has helped me extend my support system by supporting me in attending groups which benefit me and my family. She has also informed me of social activities my family can access which I’m grateful for.”
