    • To help deepen understanding of the transition process to adult social care and adult health services
    • To help deepen understanding of the support options available for young people and their families once they transition to adult services.
    • To help identify what we may need to do more of, less of, or differently, to better meet the aspirations of young people and their families.

There are so many ways to help support us

We support people with a learning disability to achieve their potential and have the same opportunities as everyone else. If you have a few hours spare each month or perhaps each week and would like to get involved we would like to hear from you.

If you are:

  • enthusiastic, sociable and out-going,
  • practical in your approach to working with others, and
  • interested in empowering others and transforming lives

Then get in touch

To support you, we will:

  • facilitate your DBS check,
  • provide a full induction,
  • offer training opportunities where possible,
  • reimburse expenses where appropriate, and
  • support you with a reference where suitable.

Interested in becoming a trustee?

If you are interested in becoming a trustee for HF Mencap, we would like to hear from you. Anyone can become a charity trustee, although we do have some requirements for a number of our specific trustee positions.  The most important thing is that you’re passionate about changing the lives of disabled people.

At HF Mencap we know diversity fosters creativity and innovation, we are committed to equal opportunities, to being fair and inclusive, and to being a place where all belong. We therefore particularly welcome applications from candidates who are likely to be underrepresented within our Trustee Board. These include people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, disabled people (including those with learning disabilities and/or autism) and LGBTQI+ people.

Trustees need to come in all shapes and sizes - if you are passionate about creating a better world for people with learning disabilities, we want to hear from you.

We are very keen to hear from you if you have lived experience of a learning disability and/or autism, are a parent/carer of someone who does or have direct experience in working in this area.
