In these times of cuts Merton Mencap needs some serious Superheroes to come to the rescue right away!

Do you know a superhero who can help us continue to provide you with our support services? Are you a secret
superhero? Is someone in your family, one of your friends... or your friends’ friend or a work colleague?!

Nominate and support one person you know to run or walk the London Superhero Run in aid of Merton Mencap. The day of action is Sunday 15th May 2016 in Regent’s Park. The mission is to run or walk 5k or 10k. Costumes are included in the £25 registration fee. Get your friends and family to help find ways of raising funds to sponsor them. Around 3,000 people are expected to suit up as Superheroes for their charity of choice. Let’s help ensure as many Magnificent Merton Mencap superheroes as possible are there too! Please contact Venetia for more information. She’s donned her cape and is at the ready to help in any way she can!

Merton Mencap is an independent, registered charity providing support and services for children, young people and adults with a learning disability and their family carers in the London Borough of Merton

Our services and activities support people with a learning disability to be safer, healthier, develop interests and take part in the mainstream as far as possible. We also support parents and carers in their caring roles. We work with local health and social services, the local education authority, other statutory agencies and other voluntary organisations to improve and develop local services. We are committed to raising awareness of the rights and needs of people with a learning disability.

Although affiliated to the national charity, Royal Mencap Society, we are not a branch. We operate independently and are responsible for raising our own funds.

We define our Mission as: To provide excellent services for people with a learning disability, based from Merton, which supports each individual to achieve and develop, however this is defined by them or for them, and to support families of people with a learning disability.
