Sheffield Mencap

Sheffield Mencap provides support and services for people with learning disabilities and their family carers, living in Sheffield.

Founded 1951

  • Mission statement

    Our vision is that all people with a learning disability and their carers in Sheffield feel valued, included and respected. We believe that everyone should be supported to reach their full potential and to live the life they choose. At Sheffield Mencap we want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the things they want from life. Aside from their disabilities our members are people who want the normal things: somewhere to live, some independence, a partner and a job. At Sheffield Mencap we run twelve long-term projects from our base at Norfolk Lodge, all of which aim to help people achieve these goals. The projects are wide-ranging, from enabling people to develop their full potential through education and training opportunities, to providing sport and leisure activities and friendship support and relief for families. Gateway, the social clubs we run in the evenings bring huge enjoyment to the members, whilst also building up skills and confidence. For many of our members of our members, who contend not only with a learning disability but also poverty and difficult home lives, the services we offer at Mencap are a lifeline.
