Mencap Tribute Funds are a very special way to celebrate the memories of a loved one with family and friends. A tribute fund can help you to express your feelings about your loved one in words, pictures, music and even video. The fund can also be used to fundraise in memory
Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their family and carers, so that we can help them transform their own lives.
We provide support and advice to 100,000 people every year and we rely on voluntary donations for much of our work.
A Tribute fund is a positive and simple way for family and friends to remember a loved one and, in their name, to support Mencap. At Mencap we are driven by our vision of a world where people with a learning disability valued equally, listened to and included.
Brothers Jonny and Ady Shales (pictured) ran the London Marathon in tribute to their aunties Sandra and Polly. Their Auntie Sandra had both learning and physical disabilites and she received support from Mencap. Their great-aunt Polly raised money for Mencap throughout her life. With such a strong family connection to Mencap, the brothers thought it would be fitting to run the marathon for Mencap and in tribute to their late aunties. Read more about their marathon experience here.
There are lots of ways to get involved in supporting Mencap. You can take part in an event, join a campaign or volunteer your time
