Mencap Direct

123 Golden Lane

In light of increased demand for its advice lines, Mencap has merged its two helplines into one freephone service, making it easier for people with a learning disability to receive the support and information that they need.

There is now a free helpline, Mencap Direct, to provide information on services which are available to people with a learning disability,such as employment and housing support, as well as advice on a wide range of issues including social care, abuse, bullying and health. Specialist helpline advisers will also be able to offer guidance on personal budgets and support plans.
