Life under Lockdown


We are making good use of Zoom during lockdown so if you would like to meet any of your friends who attend New Forest Mencap services in a Zoom room we would be happy to make that happen for you.  Just contact [email protected]


If transport difficulties prevents you from joining one of our activities or sessions, please speak to Jackie, Development Officer, on 01425 621893 or 07549 073784, as we may be able to assist you.  Don’t let lack of transport be a barrier to joining one of our groups or activities – talk to us!


We have some excellent spaces that are available for rent at the Nedderman Centre.  Please contact 01425 621893 or [email protected] for further information
