It is unlikely those parents could have envisaged, seventy years ago, that what they started would grow into the leading campaigning charity and support provider for people with learning disabilities that Harrow Mencap is today.
In 1986 the organisation became a company limited by guarantee. In 2007 we took the decision to move to bigger accommodation in the Harrovian Business Village which enabled us to consolidate our operations, ensure our sustainability and establish a firm base in the heart of Harrow.
Over 70 years old, we are still working hard to persuade the wider community, business, and public services to go beyond the label of disability and to give people with learning disabilities an equal chance.
We are also continuing to provide support and services for many people with a learning disability, their families, and others in and around Harrow through our parent company Community Connex Ltd.
