As a local, independent charity we need to raise all our own funds each year. One-off gifts, fundraising, and recurring donations are all key to keeping our services and support running.
Donations can be given at any time using the link below. You can also give in celebration – this could be for a special event or a birthday.
Set up a monthly gift
A regular monthly donation helps us plan for the future and ensure that we can continue to help young people with learning disabilities find independence and learn new skills.
Leave a gift in your will
By leaving a gift in your will you can help ensure that families, young people, and children with learning disabilities in Leeds can live their lives to the fullest. Making a will is the best way to safeguard everyone’s future.

Why others choose to support Leeds Mencap
“I chose Leeds Mencap for a few reasons. I’m a student from out of town and I know you’re a local branch of the charity and felt I needed to try and give something back to the community. Your cause of helping people live more independently and promoting acceptance spoke to me.”
“I don’t know what we would have done without Leeds Mencap in those early days. It made such a difference to us, knowing that there was somewhere to go and that we weren’t alone. We made a legacy pledge as we wanted to give something so that families in the future can continue to get the support that we did.”
“Leeds Mencap is an amazing charity and I have found my time volunteering extremely rewarding. I have learnt many new skills throughout and settled in fast to a welcoming environment.”
