  • Need


    The present building is very old and lacks the facilities we need to accommodate all those who seek to use it.


    The present building is in a poor condition and needs to be replaced.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To replace the present and inadequate building with one that meets our needs.


    » Develop a realistic plan for the new building.
    » Achieve revised planning permission.
    » Raise the funds necessary.

    What success will look like

    Success will be when we have the new building.

  • Impact


    The new building will secure the future of the Northallerton and the Dales Mencap Society on its present site which it owns.


    The only risk is not being able to raise the funds required. If necessary we would have to continue in our present building.


    Through a newsletter, by letter, by email and by conventional letters of appreciation.
