About us

An equal voice to be heard and valued

Barnet Mencap was established in 1965 and for over fifty years it has provided advice, information and support for people with learning disabilities and autistic people and their family carers.

Barnet Mencap provides a range of services for children and adults. We campaign with people with learning disabilities and autistic people and their families to secure high quality services and support in the borough.

Barnet Mencap is the leading charity for children and adults with learning disabilities and their families in the London Borough of Barnet.

A learning disability can be described as, "a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life."

People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people. 

We offer a wide range of supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities and autism. Check out our Just Holidays page for more information.

The Short Breaks Service received the CQC rating 'Good'. To view our latest CQC inspection report, for May 2019, please click here.

The website includes news from Barnet Mencap, information about staff and any current job vacancies.

Barnet Mencap is a Hate Crime Reporting Centre. If you would like to find out more about this, please click here.

There is also information about our finances, how we raise the money to run the projects and how people can make donations to Barnet Mencap.
