Welcome to New Forest Mencap

About New Forest Mencap

New Forest Mencap currently provides four leisure sessions per week in two locations, New Milton and Brockenhurst.  They consist of evenings of activities, opportunities for socialising and a number of day time outings during the year.  We have also launched the Gateway Award scheme which is based along the lines of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. We recently expanded to include some day time creative activities and  a lunch club.

Our staff and Trustees develop links with other like minded organisations and we regularly participate in the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board which is  co-ordinated by Hampshire County Council.  We are also part of the Hampshire Learning Disability Network which brings together all the other local Mencap organisations in the county.

We are trying to expand our connections with parents of people with a learning disability and seek to understand the kind of support they need.  This will inform our future provision. 

We are aware that government cuts are forcing Councils to cut spending on many existing provisions. In the meantime we will continue to work with partner organisations to ensure that the cuts do not unfairly disadvantage people with a learning disability and their families.

If you are a parent or carer we would really like to hear from you.  Contact:  Ann Page at office@newforestmencap.org
