Watford Mencap works with people with learning disabilities, their families and carers. We believe that people with a learning disability have the right to enjoy equal opportunities and be valued as members of society, enabling them to lead the life they want for themselves. Watford Mencap currently has a service user and carer base of 800 people.
Although affiliated to Royal Mencap, Watford Mencap is an independent self-financing local charity supporting people with a learning disability in Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere. Services are provided by 120 staff and casual workers plus 117 volunteers, and are supported by a fundraising department and a Finance, HR and Internal Services Department.
We have made a firm commitment to personalisation and put the service user at the heart of what we do. Watford Mencap is constantly changing the way that we work to provide individually tailored services to meet the specific needs of the people we support equipping them with tools needed to live a happy life.
