Croydon Mencap represents the interests of people with learning disabilities, their families and carers within the London Borough of Croydon.
We are a charitable voluntary organisation and registered charity with our own Board of voluntary Trustees/Directors. Croydon Mencap’s purpose is to provide advice, information and support through a range of projects and services. Croydon Mencap is affiliated to Royal Mencap but is not financially supported or governed by its National body.
Community heroes in our borough are set to be honoured in the 2017 Mayor of Croydon’s Civic Awards, created to recognise the commitment, energy and goodwill of volunteers, community groups, local partners and businesses who help to make Croydon a brilliant place for people to live, visit, work and grow.
It could be someone who helps to keep Croydon green and clean, a local business partnership which helps young people into work or just someone who is making a difference – do you know a young person who has against the odds transformed their own lives and now helps others to help themselves?
For information, go to www.croydon.gov.uk/civicawards. Have a look, and nominate a community hero!
Nominating is easy – you can do it online or complete the nomination form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Need help completing a nomination? Just email email@example.com or call 0208 604 7042. Nominations must be in by 8th September 2017.
This project is about giving people with learning disabilities a real voice to improve healthcare services.
CHANGE would like to invite people with a learning disability to answer a few questions and about their ideas on how membership could work and about their experiences of healthcare services. Please click on the link below for further details.
