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 email@example.com. Need help completing a nomination? Just email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
There are still spaces available on the Disability Youth Project Summer Schemes.
Please see below for further info, and do not worry that the deadline for applications has passed.
For more information contact Paul Funnell – email: email@example.com or telephone 07990790183.

Croydon Mencap’s Leslie Park Project would like to invite you to our Vintage Fair. This is by no means a description of the team who work here! We will be selling afternoon tea with very decent home – made cake along with artwork and shabby chic products … oh yes we certainly know how to do things in style at this project! Please come along to support us even if you just pop in.
The Bunting will be flying high to welcome you all!
