New members and volunteers wanted!

WHY not make your 2020 New Year's Resolution a pledge to become a member of Carlisle Mencap and/or volunteer to help out at our fundraising events? It will cost you very little in time and money yet you will have lots of fun AND make a big difference to more than 500 adults and children with learning disabilities and their families across Cumbria.

It costs just £1.25 a year to become a member of Carlisle Mencap. Each member is a valued member of our family and it means your voice will be heard. With the help and support of members, we can raise our profile and more importantly, in the face of funding cutbacks, raise money to help provide the vital support and services people of all ages with learning disabilities need. 

For a membership form and/or more details, contact Carlisle Mencap on 01228 774393 or email [email protected]

And we are always on the lookout for volunteers too! From serving burgers at our fundraising family barbecues to selling raffle tickets, running stalls at shows to helping out on activities and trips involving our weekend clubs, we want to hear from enthusiastic people aged 16 and above who are willing to give up a few hours each month to help with our vital fundraising events and club activities and trips.
