Basingstoke Mencap

Exploring our Horizons Together


 

What we do

 

Basingstoke Mencap provides services and support for adults and young people with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues along with their families and carers.

 

Our services include:-

  • One to One support to help individuals to manage their homes and assist them to interact with the community through activities such as shopping and leisure.
  • Leisure clubs for adults and for young people
  • Through the ASPIRE project, we help both young people and adults with learning disabilities to prepare themselves for volunteering, work experience and ultimately paid employment. Full support is provided for the individuals up to and including their successful appointment.
  • The GREENFINGERS project provides opportunities to learn new skills in horticulture, our woodwork and craft activities.

 

In addition to the services, the charity provides information, issues monthly newsletters and supports individuals and families when they are facing crises.
