Project Date(s): March 2021
Ealing Mencap is a charity working in North West London to offer person-centred support, advice, and opportunities for people with learning disabilities, as well as their familes and carers. We have a wide range of services, and through partnership working we also support people with other kinds of disability.
We are a local group that is affiliated to the national Mencap, but we are independently run and funded. Ealing Mencap has existed for more than 50 years, founded originally by a committed group of local parents and carers in 1965. For many years, social clubs and other services were run on a voluntary basis until the late 1980s, as the focus shifted towards local charities employing staff to deliver services to a professional standard.
The years since then have seen steady growth in the overall number and diversity of services that Ealing Mencap offers, with our priorities to improve people’s quality of life, campaign, enable participation, and give people a voice, at the heart of all that we do.
