For our third feature charity of the year we are delighted to be working with Mencap and turning your vehicles into donations for them. We’ll be aiming to raise £5,000 in support of the incredible work they do. Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything they do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers.
Mencap’s mission is to transform society’s attitudes to learning disability and improve the quality of life of people with a learning disability and their families. Their work is divided into 6 priorities. And are the areas of life they want to have the biggest impact on, the areas where there is the most need to see change for the better. They are:
- reducing stigma and discrimination
- early intervention
- making a difference, here and now
- supporting friendships and relationships
- improving health
“We are so excited and proud to be partnered with Giveacar, and by doing so we are working towards unlocking a world of inclusion and equal opportunities for the 1.4 million people in the UK with a learning disability. We could not continue the vital work we do without the support of companies like Giveacar, particularly over the past year where things have been even more difficult for everybody.” – Jodie Upson, Senior Area Fundraising Manager
