Geographical remit: 


Harrow Mencap is the primary campaigning organisation and the leading voice and provider of personalised services for people with learning disabilities in Harrow. 

We work with over 500 people each year offering a lifetime of personalised care and support from childhood through to older age.

We run a number of grant funded projects promoting inclusion, participation and community engagement.  We support people with learning disabilities, helping them to speak up on issues ranging from welfare reform, health, transport, voting and housing. 

Involving people is at the heart of the way we work.  People who use our services feel a strong sense of ownership because they are involved at all levels of service provision and provision.  We are passionate about enabling people to have their voices heard and become active citizens.
