What We Do

We are a specialist charity which provides support, care, advice and guidance to people with a learning disability and their families and carers. We are based in West Berkshire but do also help people in neighbouring areas.

Our Mencap Centre in Enborne Gate is a modern light airy building set in a quiet residential area but away from our neighbours with plentiful parking. We have a large hall with a modern kitchen, beautiful new sensory room and soft play area which is fully equipped. Outside there is a large play area with various swings, slides and other apparatus. These facilities allow disabled children and their siblings to enjoy play together and are also available for hire. We also run our Family Advisor service from this building

Our newly built horticultural and social inclusion facility, adjacent to the main Mencap Centre, currently provides opportunities for members to enjoy growing flowers and vegetables as well as learning woodworking skills.  Over the summer of 2023 the site will complete the pottery unit and crafting facilities.  This brand new site will offer so much more than our previous horticultural project at Cottesmore, we continue to fundraise to reach completion and to further develop these exciting opportunities for our members. We would be delighted if you could support this project with a donation, simply click the ‘donate’ button.  We look forward to seeing you at our ‘open days’ as the year progresses when we welcome our neighbours and wider community to explore, shop and enjoy this facility with us.

Our sheltered employment and training scheme is based at the Slater Centre in Bone Lane Newbury where we also deliver a wide variety of Leisure Activities

We also have registered Domiciliary Care Agency (Your Choice Services) which is based at the Slater Centre and delivers care and support to people in their own homes, out in the community and at our Supported Living units Heffernan House and Stella Maris.
