Rutland Mencap Logo

Rutland Mencap is a friendly group set up to offer young people in Rutland with special educational needs of ANY type various activities and experiences. We also hope to provide a supportive environment where parents can meet and support each other – whether it is questions about how to get a statement, tips on managing aggression or just a friendly face that understands. We try to plan a range of activities that will appeal to a spectrum of young people – including those that might be more challenging by nature – and we try hard to keep the activities age appropriate at all times. Often our activities try to appeal to the interests of the young people – we do not put them in a situation where they HAVE to socialise and mix with each other – though they often do which is a bonus!

Some of our activities are family trips: London, York etc.. And some of the activities are for the young people only with experienced carers provided by Mencap. In the past year these have included: Dr Who Live, Twycross Zoo, Thinktank Museum, 3D Polar Express, summer activity scheme and more. 
We welcome suggestions from families on trips and activities they would like – and actively encourage feedback from the young people as well.
