Carlisle Mencap History

Carlisle Mencap was founded in June 1968. We provide support and services for more than 500 adults and children with learning disabilities and their families across Cumbria.

We are locally managed and funded, not a branch of  the national organisation although we do work closely with them on many of our projects. We are a membership organisation and have over 150 members made up of people with learning disabilities, carers and other interested parties. We believe everyone with a learning disability has an equal right to choice, opportunity and respect, with the support they need.

We are a forward thinking organisation with a dedicated team who will always be happy to help you and your family. We have many existing serivces and can offer support for people of any age with a learning disability. We provide person centred support to all of our clients and support people with all different types disabilities. We run children’s respite facilities at the Grace Little Centre in Carlisle, Huntley Avenue in Penrith and Hart Street in ULverston. We have an adults respite centre at California House in Carlisle.

If you have any queries or questions please contact us.

THANK YOU for your support ...
