Reading Mencap

Registered Charity Number 1118287

Reading Mencap has been supporting children and adults with learning disabilities and autism, and their families, for over 50 years. While we are affiliated to the national learning disability charity, Mencap, we receive no financial support from it and have to rely on the generosity of the local community to help fund our work.

We support individuals and families to live full and happy lives, free from discrimination and isolation. Our Family Support Service provides information, advice and practical support on a one-to-one basis to help families deal with issues such as a lack of social care/benefits/special education provision, debt, hate crime, ill health and unsuitable housing. Our day service and activity groups enable people with a learning disability to make friends, learn new skills and have fun while their families get a regular break from caring. Activities include drama, singing, arts and crafts, sports and trips out.
