A small, local charity with big ambitions; specialising in truly relevant support and with clear objectives that focus on the needs of our users and their family carers

Southampton Mencap is a voluntary organisation based in Portswood for children, young people and adults with a learning disability and their family carers. We work to raise awareness to their rights, alongside the direct provision of a range of services. We also take great pride in remaining small, local and strong. Alongside this we place a strong focus on working with other local agencies and the Local Authority to jointly improve the services available to our client group.
