For Advice: you can call Mencap’s Direct Advice and Information Service on 0808 808 1111, which provide useful information for people with learning disabilities, and their families and carers. We are part of Mental Health Foundation.

We work with:

  • people with learning disabilities

  • families

  • carers

  • local authorities

  • service providers.

We help to make things better for people with learning disabilities.

Our office is in London but we work with people all over the United Kingdom and sometimes in other countries too.

We look at how to change things that are not going well for people with learning disabilities and suggest ways to make them better.

We do this by:

  • research

  • writing reports or guide books

  • advising organisations to help make them better (this is called evaluation).

This organisation works with people with learning disabilities, their families and the people who support them. The Foundation also caters for children and young people, and focuses on inclusion, person-centred support, employment, influencing services and policy, and awareness-raising.
