Welcome to our website.

Isle of Wight Mencap is ‘the voice of learning disability on the Island’. Isle of Wight Mencap believe that “people with a learning disability have the right to enjoy equal opportunities and be valued as members of society, enabling them to lead the life they want for themselves.”

We’re a local charity. We support children, young people and adults with learning disabilities in lots of different ways. We also support parents and carers, providing them with information, advice on relevant issues. We rely on volunteers to help deliver our services and welcome those who want to make a positive difference.

Although affiliated to National Mencap, Isle of Wight Mencap is a local charity that is completely independently funded and run, we rely on the generosity of the local community to allow us to keep delivering services across the Island.
