This year has been very challenging for the charity sector and Leeds Mencap is no difference. In a recent survey, 94% of Leeds Mencap families said that they have felt more isolated during Covid-19. The impact of the pandemic on families who have children and young people with learning disabilities has put both parents and their children under incredible strain, with many experiencing increased anxiety and worsening mental and emotional health.
Cath Lee, CEO of Leeds Mencap, says: “We are absolutely delighted with the generosity shown by Stowe Family Law. By supporting Leeds Mencap they will help us to continue to support families when they need us most.”
Tom Suttill at Stowe Family Law LLP says “We are proud to be a member of the Leeds Mencap Business Club. As a family law firm that was founded in Leeds, we feel the importance of supporting local families, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with Leeds Mencap who make a real difference to children and young people with learning disabilities in Leeds. I would encourage other local businesses to get involved and help the charity’s wonderful work continue to grow.”
