What is a learning disability?

People who have a learning disability struggle with everyday life that others take for granted, for example doing household tasks, socialising or managing money. They often need support to deal with things and to interact with other people. 

Kingston Mencap is affiliated to the Royal Mencap Society - the leading charity for people with learning disabilities. The charity was established in 1952.

The Carers Group

The Carers Group is being reviewed by Kingston Mencap trustees so the monthly meetings are cancelled until further notice.

This decision has not been taken lightly, but there has been little interest or attendance lately even when inviting speakers, and although we both stay committed we felt it was time to call it a day for now!
Please do get in touch if you think we can help with individual support or information.
