Our Mission

Making Care Fair aims to challenge the inequalities suffered by the adult learning-disabled community through the social care system.

By working with the community of adults with Learning Disabilities, we intend to identify where the problems lie, and who caused them, and campaign to ensure every adult with Learning Disabilities receives the care package they need to be able to function comfortably in their everyday lives.

About Southend Mencap

Southend Mencap is a registered charity that was formed in 1955. The charity’s main aim is to serve the interests and needs of children and adults with learning disabilities, as well as those of their parents and carers, in the southeast of Essex. Southend Mencap can use the name Mencap by being affiliated to national Mencap but that is where the link to them ends. We are a completely independent society/organisation, are self-governed and self-financed. We need to seek our own funding and arrange all services and activities for the learning disabled ourselves. There is no referral system to Mencap, and they do not provide us or any of the other local Mencap society’s with any income or funding. Any funding raised by Mencap never gets passed down to the local societies. The society has a board of trustees, who meet once a month to discuss with the general manager what has been happening both within and outside the society. All the trustees are volunteers, and, in total, the society has in excess of 80 volunteers across all our activities and they provide in excess of 100 hours support per week.
