    “Ealing Mencap has a passion…………………………. a passion for changing lives”.

    Our Vision

    Everyone we support will have the opportunity in life to reach their potential.


    Our Mission

    We campaign for people’s rights, create opportunities, showcase our customers’ talents and skills, and break down barriers to overcome isolation and change lives.


    Our Values

    • We are Brave - we have the courage to demand better for our customers, be open to new ideas, and stand up to inequality wherever we see it.
    • We are Innovative - we take a "can-do" approach, offering person-centred support in a flexible way, and be forward thinking to ensure our services are the best they can be.
    • We are Approachable - we will be there to listen to our customers and partners, and welcome new opportunities for collaborations and partnership work.
    • We are Respectful - we will value the contributions of every one of our customers and staff, thriving on the different viewpoints and ideas that diversity offers.

    Ealing Mencap is a charity dedicated to providing advice and high-quality social, personal development and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities, as well as their families and carers, in the London Borough of Ealing and nearby.

    Ealing Mencap makes a huge positive contribution to the lives of the children and young people that use their services, and also to their families. They do this by:

    • Offering a range of after school activities which enable their children to socialise and develop confidence and new skills
    • Training and supporting children and young people in a range of critical life skills especially independent travel training;
    • giving families a much-needed respite break from their caring responsibilities;
    • Raising awareness about those with additional needs in the Ealing community.

    “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. They continue to keep their Ealing families at the heart of their services as they strive for a better future for children and young people with disabilities. 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. Ealing Mencap are proud of their charity’s roots. In 2016/17 we worked with over 2000 children and adults with learning disabilities.”

    Reaching Our Potential

    In 2017 we launched our three-year strategy plan Reaching Our Potential, which outlines our vision, mission and values. After consultation with our staff, our customers and carers, we are confident that the plan gives us a clear direction to offer the best possible support to anyone who comes to Ealing Mencap.
