The MENCAP - Royal Society for Mentally Handicapped Children and Adults is a non-profit organization exclusively concerned with learning disabled people of all degrees, their families, and caregivers. Since 1946, the Society has dedicated itself to providing support, opportunity, and advice to individuals with learning disabilities and their families, and today, MENCAP is the largest national organization of its type. Through its divisional and district offices, its federation of Gateway Clubs, and its associations with the International League of Societies for Mentally Handicapped Children and Adults and other national consortia, MENCAP offers a wide range of programs and services. These services include residential homes, training facilities and employment opportunities, support groups, networking, and public awareness campaigns. MENCAP also conducts research, publishes reports and a newsletter, produces audio-visual aids, and maintains a database of information. MENCAP only serves the United Kingdom, not including Scotland.
