Why support us?
As an independent charity, working with companies makes a huge difference to us here at Leeds Mencap.
We have to secure all of our own funding each year, so our partners are crucial to help us continue our work. By joining with us by doing something at work, you’ll be making a huge difference to children with learning disabilities across Leeds.
There are loads of ways that your company can get involved and have fun at work. You could organise a lunchtime quiz, a sponsored talent show or have a weekly running challenge. Check out our virtual events and see if anything takes your fancy. Whatever you do, your staff will get the chance to get together and have a good laugh. Get in touch with us and we’ll be more than happy to chat about your ideas and promote it through our social media channels.
Why others choose us
We really wanted to join hands with Leeds Mencap and support the local community at a grassroots level. The Apprentice Challenge encouraged staff volunteering and overall promoted a culture that benefits society.
Who you will be supporting
Jim and Emily
Emily was born with a rare brain disorder which affects her eyesight and coordination. She also has a learning disability and this meant that growing up she needed extra support at school and home. She found it difficult to access social activities because of a lack of support for individuals with additional needs.Find out more
