London Marathon 2022 - Mencap

I've been lucky to live very close to the London Marathon route and it has been a bit of a pilgrimage getting up early on a Sunday to go and watch and support the runners.

It has been really inspiring watching friends and family that  have participated in the past and this year I'm going to complete the London Marathon 2022 and raise money for the very worthwhile charity Mencap.

Right now, people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life with almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spending less than 1 hour outside their home on a typical Saturday.

They face barriers finding a job, accessing activities in their local community and receiving good quality healthcare.

We tackle these issues head on by providing support in a way that meets individual needs and encourages greater independence.We give expert advice and information that empowers people and their families. And we campaign relentlessly for changes that brings greater equality for people with a learning disability.

By supporting Team Mencap you will be helping us to support people with a learning disability to live the life they choose, and do the things they love.
