About the Organisation

Keynsham & District Mencap work to improve the lives and opportunities of children and adults with a wide range of learning disabilities.
We offer a variety of social and leisure opportunities for children and adults. We have weekly social clubs, youth clubs and children's groups, as well as fitness, football and music for ages 16+.

We welcome members from B&NES, Bristol and South Glos as well as some further afield and have a membership of over 150.
Members ages range from 5 – 18 years for junior clubs, and we run adult clubs for 18 years and over. The members have a broad range of needs and disabilities, including learning and physical disabilities, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebal Palsy and Attention Deficit Disorder.
