How your support helps

Leeds Mencap is a charity in Leeds that helps provide support for children with learning disabilities and their families. It is an important part of the community and greatly benefits from donations of any size.

£30 could pay for an experienced adviser to provide practical support and a listening ear to a parent who doesn’t know where to turn.

£100 could pay for a Makaton tutor to teach parents attending our coffee mornings some basic signs so they can understand and communicate with their non verbal child.

£200 could pay for a group of young adults to go bowling together, giving them an opportunity for independence and socialising.

£500 could pay for the skilled staff needed to help children develop their early years skills during two sensory play sessions in our specialist play room.
