Welcome to Brighton Mencap

Brighton, Hove & District Mencap Society is one among many organisations based in the United Kingdom that help voice the rights of individuals with learning disabilities. Find out more about the services we provide and get involved.

What we do

As a group of volunteers, we in Brighton & Hove seek to provide support for local people with learning difficulties, both children and adult, as well as their families and carers. There are currently two ways we do this:

Holiday Grants
We provide grants to families and people with learning disability, for the following.

  • Local fun activities or day trips
  • Weekends away or a longer holiday, perhaps with family and friends.

We liaise with a variety of other local groups, as well as sponsor various trips and activities.

Grants can be applied for annually by filling out a form, which can be downloaded here or you can give Lorna a ring on 01273 479620 and she will post you a Grant Application Form. Please return any completed forms to our treasurer, details are below.
