The charity is active in its support for national and local initiatives to improve services for people with learning disabilities, such as Royal Mencap’s Helping to Fight Hate Crime national campaign. It also contributes to local policy-making, such as the recent Learning Disability Review. Membership of Kingston Mencap is just £5 a year and includes a quarterly newsletter, club membership and exciting social events.
What is a learning disability?
People who have a learning disability struggle with everyday life that others take for granted, for example doing household tasks, socialising or managing money. They often need support to deal with things and to interact with other people.
Kingston Mencap is affiliated to the Royal Mencap Society - the leading charity for people with learning disabilities. The charity was established in 1952.
