Carers Services

Formerly known as Wokingham, Bracknell and Districts Mencap
We are a local, independent registered charity, proudly supporting adults and children with learning disabilities and/or autism, their parents, carers and their families. 

We provide a range of services including:

Carer and family support
Activities for children with learning disabilities and/or autism
Activities for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism
Support for siblings
Activities for carers
Campaigning on local and national issues

Many of our staff and volunteers have first-hand experience of caring for someone with a learning disability and/or autism. We understand the importance of being surrounded by others who can empathise, support and provide respite from your caring responsibilities. 

Respite activities for carers include; theatre and shopping trips, pamper events, carers coffee mornings and lunches with peer support and emotional and practical support from our Family Liaison Team.

Organised information events aimed at carers cover topical issues such as Wills & Trusts, Benefits and Approaching Adulthood. We always support Carers’ Week and work in partnership with other Carer organisations to ensure the best support for our members.
