Treat Me Well campaign

Carlisle Mencap, like all Mencap groups across the UK, is backing the charity's Treat Me Well campaign for 2020. 1,200 people with a learning disability die avoidably every year. This has to change.

Posted Tuesday, 6th October 2020

Treat Me Well calls on NHS staff to make reasonable adjustments for people with a learning disability which can help to save lives. Simple adjustments make a big difference. More time, better communication and clearer information can all help to make sure someone with a learning disability is treated well in hospital. So to support our campaign and to find out more, please go to

THANK YOU for your support ...
