 Equal People mencap's mission statement was chosen by our members. It is: 

Turning Dreams into Action At The Pace of The Individual

We are an independent, registered charity, formed in 1987 to provide support to vulnerable adults and children, including people with learning disabilities, autism, complex needs, mental health issues and physical disabilities, their family and carers.

We currently work in Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster and Hammersmith and Fulham but can work across London.

Our aim is to enable people:

  • to be heard
  • to have more control over their lives
  • to achieve personal aims and dreams
  • to be safe from harassment and abuse
  • to be increasingly independent,
  • to access, participate in, contribute to and influence the local and wider community.

We are affiliated to National Mencap and part of the North West London Mencap Consortium – 7 local Mencap’s working together to improve opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

An independent survey and evaluation of Equal people mencap carried out in July 2018 showed that we supported 280 individuals and carers over the past year. Those supported represent 30 different nationalities, speaking 25 different languages.

Support has enabled individuals to:

  • maintain their tenancy, living independently in the community. Learning and maintaining budgeting, cooking, shopping skills.
  • attend college, find and stay in employment
  • participate in community leisure and social activities
  • prevent issues developing into crises
  • build and maintain friendships and relationships
  • speak up and influence support, opportunities and services available to vulnerable individuals.
  • have respite (carers) and access to advice and support.
