About Us

At Bath Mencap our vision is for people in the Bath area with a learning disability to live fulfilling lives where they are valued equally.

We believe that people with a learning disability have the following rights (as set out in the Royal Mencap manifesto):

• To be treated as equal citizens and have control over their lives
• To have a childhood like any other child
• To live independently as adults
• To have support to get a job
• To have opportunities to lead fulfilling lives – both for people with a learning disability and family and carers
• To receive good healthcare
• To have sufficient income and be economically active
• To have opportunities for friendships, relationships and a family life
