Programme: Development & Impact / What Works Location: West of England; West Midlands
Mencap is a charity that works to improve the lives of people with a learning disability. They offer a range of specialist support services that vary from round-the-clock care to helping someone join in with local leisure activities, providing employment or education advice or helping individuals transition to living independently.
The grant will help support 100 young people aged 18-24 in the West Midlands and South West who have learning disabilities, difficulties or autism. The project will offer young people the chance to be partnered with employers, and supports participants to find meaningful work.
