Coventry Mencap was founded in 1954 by a group of concerned parents worried by the lack of provisions in the community and the need to understand the type of support required for carers to continue in their role of caring for their loved ones.
Founder members joined a new national group now known as The Royal Mencap Society believing that by joining together we can have a stronger voice in national and local decisions that affect people with a learning disability.
Over the last 60 years Coventry Mencap has been involved either directly, or by campaigning, at the start of most of the services that are now taken for granted in Coventry. However, we are aware there is still more to be done and continue to work for and with people with a learning disability, their families, and their carers.
