How we can help
At Leeds Mencap, we offer support to the whole family. Whether your child has a learning disability and you are looking for activities that stimulate and help them to develop their communication, skills and confidence as well as socialise with their peers, or whether you are concerned that their brother or sister is missing out and could do with some time to themselves, look no further.
We run a number of activity groups during school term times and playschemes during the school holidays. Check out the information on these pages. We’ve split the groups by age to help you find the right group or activity for your child.
If you’re looking for information, support or guidance as a parent or carer, we have something for you too. We know having a child with a learning or any disability can sometimes be a lonely, frustrating and confusing experience. We also know that, like any other parent, you will love and celebrate your child for who they are and have moments of pride and joy that you want to share. We have staff who can support you and help point you in the right direction for those moments of confusion and parent support groups where you can have time to yourself and feel safe with other parents and carers who understand your experience and can share your highs and lows.
