Leeds Mencap is a completely independent charity that was created sixty years ago, by and for, the people of Leeds with learning disabilities.
Leeds Mencap currently supports more than 250 families on a weekly basis and aims to provide support, advice and practical help for the whole family, long term. They do this through a range of activities, including the Hawthorn Family Support Centre for families with children under three, partly funded by DM Thomas Foundation for Young People.
“The one on one support both my child and I have received is invaluable. I have watched my son go from strength to strength on the support of Leeds Mencap alone.”
Since 2010 the DM Thomas Foundation has supported Leeds Mencap with £3,000.
