Here at the Local Offer we enjoy a great working partnership with Wirral Mencap. Tina keeps us up to date with all that’s going on so that we can share the information with you. Wirral Mencap provides services and opportunities for people with a learning disability and their family carers.
Here’s the latest update from Tina. Support is still being offered during the COVID 19 outbreak. We offer a range of support and activity for people with a learning disability including telephone befrienders, online courses, some face to face courses and a wide variety of stimulating and fun activities, and of course our Information and Advice Service for people with a learning disability and parents and carers.
Current courses and activities are detailed in the timetables below.

Our Information & Advice Service is still taking your calls so if you need help with anything get in touch!
This service can offer information, advice and support with any issues you might have with things like social care, housing, welfare benefits, wills and trusts, being a Carer. We can help with paperwork, meetings and understanding your rights. We have two workshops coming up in April for parents/ informal carers: exploring how to access independent living, and how to get started on creating wills and trusts for your family member with a learning disability. Give Tina a call to find out more.
At Wirral Mencap we are determined to keep improving and developing our services and campaigning for improvements across the board for people with a learning disability and their parents and carers.
This year, in line with our new strategy, we have created a Wirral Mencap co-production and steering group, a group of people with a learning disability and parents and carers, who participate in the various ‘campaigns’ we are keen to champion.
We are always keen to hear from people who want to get involved. Anyone who’d like to find out more click this link to see our flyer on the Local Offer. Make it Better Group comes to Wirral Mencap – Fancy getting involved? | Local Offer Wirral
