Bromley Mencap is an independent self-funded charity working with disabled people. We’re based in the London Borough of Bromley (hence the name), and we’ve been around since 1951. You can read more about our history on this page
Although the London Borough of Bromley (population approximately 300,000) is typical of many outer Boroughs of big cities that are stereotyped as ‘prosperous’, there are still areas of real and serious need. In the case of many individuals this need is heightened by the gap in opportunities and lifestyle between them and other local inhabitants.
Bromley Mencap’s continuous action on behalf of disabled people, their parents and carers, is based on the principle that their clients have a need and right to live like others in the community, and to have a reasonable quality of life.
To fulfill these aims, we employ a Chief Executive and a team of full and part time staff which is supported by a loyal group of volunteers.
We provide a range of services and activities for disabled people, and their parents and carers. You can tell by that phrase that we help all ages, from young children right through to elderly people.
Bromley Mencap is affiliated to the Royal Mencap Society.
