About us

We are a charity providing social and leisure opportunities to young people and adults with Learning Disabilities. We run weekly social clubs, sports clubs and projects.  We arrange day trips and activities.

At Northampton Mencap we believe all young people and adults with a Learning Disability should be able to access the same social and leisure activities as their peers. We help people to make the most of their lives – to get a little more independence, to build friendships, take part in exciting activities and new experiences.

We run a Members Committee that meet every other month. They tell us what they want from their clubs and how we can improve the services we offer. Northampton Mencap services are available to anyone in Northampton and the surrounding areas with a Learning Disability and to their families.

Northampton Mencap works with all who want to improve the quality of life for people with a learning disability. We have recently become a Beacon club and work with other gateway clubs, sharing resources and ideas. This is a new venture for us which we are all very excited about.
