Why #StepUp4Mencap?

By stepping up for Mencap you'll be helping to:

  • Support even more children with a learning disability at Mencap Children's Centre - giving more children the right support at the right time.
  • Launch a new family support service for the whole of Northern Ireland - making sure that when any child is diagnosed with a learning disability their family knows where to turn to for information, advice and support.
  • Introduce brand new "play and stay" sessions, allowing parents to come together with their children and specialists so that they can learn how to best help their child's development.
  • Increase the range of services we run in your local community to support children and young people with a learning disability and their families, like after school clubs and holiday play schemes.
