At Wirral Mencap, we don’t just support adults with a learning disability, we help parents and family carers too.

Our Information, Advice and Advocacy Service helps family members deal with current challenges but also supports families to face the difficult task of looking ahead and preparing for the future.  We offer an annual programme of informative workshops and events as well as providing one to one support.

The team is on hand to help those families with younger children too, with a view to welcoming them into the Wirral Mencap community once they are older.

One of the best ways to benefit from what we do is to become a member. Anyone, with or without a learning disability, can do this and become part of the Wirral Mencap community.  You’ll get to find out early about what’s coming up and can have a say in what new areas of support we should offer.

If you’re a Wirral-based family member of a person with a learning disability and are looking for advice or support, reach out to us and we will be in touch.
