Greenwich Mencap runs a range of support services for Adults and Children with learning disabilities and their families in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Established over 50 years ago, we continue to campaign to ensure that the rights of people with learning disabilities are respected and that their voices are heard.

We are always on the lookout for talented sessional suport workers to work with adults and children with learning disabilities across all our services. For full details and an application pack, see the Jobs page.
Greenwich Mencap not only supports people with a learning disability and their carers – we also lend our voice to theirs in raising issues and concerns affecting the lives of people with a learning disability. Whether that be education, employment, social lives or care – Greenwich Mencap will always campaign for the best possible services for people with a learning disability.
As an affiliate to national Mencap, and with a membership in the hundreds across the borough and beyond, we are a strong organisation and we know the impact we can have when we all speak with one voice.
At the same time, we will always alert our members to those times when they can let their own opinions be heard. All too often the views of people with a learning disability go unnoticed. Communication is often a barrier, while carers are frequently too busy caring to fully assert themselves. In these cases, Greenwich Mencap is here to support.
If there is an issue you believe in, and you think we should know about it, or do more to help bring about changes, we’d love to hear from you.
