Menphys is Leicester and Leicestershire’s local charity serving children and young people with a wide range of physical, learning, communication, sensory, emotional and behavioural difficulties, including complex health care needs. Menphys provides an outreach service, respite clubs, holiday clubs and inclusion opportunities through the ‘I Can Do It Too! ’ taster activity scheme.
Our mission is to deliver a quality service that values the views and enables the voice of disabled children, young people and their families in Leicestershire and Leicester. We aim to provide a range of holistic, impartial and empowering specialist services through our own resources and in partnership with the statutory authorities and other voluntary sector groups.
Within the framework of everything we do, we aim to identify unmet need and offer effective support, which is in step with current legislation and concepts of good practice.
We value diversity and believe that every child or young person, whatever their needs, has the equal right to take part fully in their community and to have the same choices, opportunities and experiences as other children.
Menphys Limited aims to:
- To enable us to provide additional 'I can do it too!' taster activities for disabled children. These activities build the confidence of the children and their families
- To develop our provision called the 'Work Ready Crew' which provides advice and guidance to disabled young people to help them get ready for the world of work, incl placements with organisations.
- To promote and develop our services (support, help, guidance, activities) with the BME community in Leicester/shire, initially starting with research into barriers to engagement.
