The charity Mencap dates right back to 1946, when it was formed by Judy Fryd. It is the UK’s leading learning disability charity and works to help not only people who have a learning disability, but also their parents, families and carers.
Mencap’s Sheffield branch is based in Norfolk Park, and offers a great range of indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as a huge range of services for all potential users of the charity.
During it’s existence, Mencap has been represented by Royalty, including our current Queen and the Queen Mother prior to her passing. In addition, it has many high-profile supporters and patrons including actors, singers and politicians, such as Johnny Lee Miller, Snow Patrol, Jo Whiley, The Edge (U2), Duran Duran and Christopher Ecclestone.
