Children and young people

We can provide support for children of any age and for any length of time. We take referals from families, social workers or from other professionals and can accept payments from direct payments or contracts with the social work teams. We run clubs and activities throughout the year and do extra playschemes in school holidays. We can also provide overnight respite at the Grace Little Centre- a fully accessible building which has a sensory and soft play room as well as an outdoor play area, IT equipment, activity room and games consoles in the living room.

 

Clubs and Activities

We offer a wide range of clubs and activities for young people with learning disabilities in the Carlisle and Allerdale areas both in term time and in the school holidays.

Community support

Carlisle Mencap provide outreach support in the community for Children with learning disabilities to do a variety of different activities and support them to be as independent as possible.

Short breaks at Grace Little Centre

One of the most important ways to help families with profoundly disabled young people is to provide short breaks away from the family home for the young person.
