What is the SEND toy and resource library
Our SEND toy and resource library is available for families to borrow and try out toys to enhance at-home provision and support development.
We have an online catalogue that is split into development categories – designed to give guidance on which toys can be used to boost certain areas of development.
Toy Library Subscription is an add on to your membership account – when signing up you can choose to register as a free member or to purchase a Toy Library subscription.
How our toy library works
To use our toy library, you’ll need to:
- Become a Leeds Mencap Member,
- agree to our terms and conditions, and
- pay a yearly subscription fee (£25 for parents and carers, £50 for professionals).

Parents can rent a maximum of 3 toys at a time, each for a period of up to 4 weeks.
