Watford Mencap supports over 800 people with learning disabilities and their families in South West Herts. We are affiliated to Royal Mencap but are a self-funding and independent local charity that has provided services and support to local families for the past 70 years.
We currently operate across 11 sites in Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford. It’s an exciting time of change for the charity, having just bought a new building to bring together our head office and children’s centre along with our plans to develop a range of brand-new short breaks services in this exciting new central hub for the charity in Watford. Over the next 5 years we shall expand and develop this hub into a multipurpose site used by the charity and other local groups.
Watford Mencap has Investors in People accreditation, an Outstanding Ofsted status, an Advice Service Quality Mark and a range of operational projects that are recognised by CQC for delivering excellent quality services. We are also the winner of the HCPA Most Innovative Learning Disability Team Award in 2018 and a winner at the Hertfordshire Care Awards 2018.
