Charity Award – Sheffield Mencap and Gateway
Posted on May 7, 2017
Sheffield Mencap is an independent local charity that provides support and services for children and adults with learning disabilities and autism. Our members have moderate to severe learning disabilities which means that they have to contend with lifelong conditions which impact on every aspect of daily life and in particular their communication and social skills. Our vision is that our members are able to fulfil their potential and to live the lives they want to live.
Every weekday at Norfolk Lodge, we provide support and services designed to improve our members’ quality of life: at The Activity and Learning Hub we teach life skills such as cookery, literacy and numeracy, IT skills, Self-Advocacy in a safe and nurturing environment. We work with over 500 people with learning disabilities every week and we secure all our own funding. With your support we can make their lives better.
