Mencap NIMencap NI was established in Northern Ireland in 1965 and each year we support thousands of people with a learning disability to live their lives the way they choose.

We work in partnership with people with a learning disability in Northern Ireland to fight to change laws and improve services and access to education, employment and leisure facilities.

We do this by: delivering a wide range of practical support services for children, young people and adults with a learning disability and their families and carers; we ensure that children attending Mencap’s Nursery can learn and play in a therapeutic environment that helps to develop skills and achieve goals that would be unatainable without specialist expertise and support providing people with a learning disability a platform to speak out about the things that are important to them challenging attitudes and assumptions about learning disability and involving people from different backgrounds.
