East Dorset MENCAP

East Dorset Mencap operates locally to enable the values, choice, opportunity and respect for our members, families and carers and all people with learning disabilities. We look to enhance quality of life and enable opportunities wherever we are able.

We help families in the local community by awarding grants to help towards respite care, be it for a break or to join a weekly club. As well as grants, we also offer two Saturday clubs, ‘Poppets’ for children with learning disabilities and ‘Senior Club’ for adults with disabilities. Both these clubs provide respite for parents and our members to enjoy various activities including arts, crafts, music, games, cooking and much more.

We also provide grants to Artz+, a local Dorset organisation which provides school holiday arts and sports events for children with additional needs and their families.

If you would like to speak to someone about how we can help you or if you would like to apply for a grant or attend our clubs, please contact us on the details provided.

We are always looking for new volunteers, if you think you can bring something to the committee or help out at our clubs, please contact Carmela on 01202 431952 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., we would be happy to have a chat.

We rely on fundraising to keep our services running, if you would like to organise any fundraising, be it an event, sponsor day, school or workplace non-uniform or bake sale we would be more than happy to provide you with all the help and equipment you require.
