History

What became Shrewsbury Mencap was first registered with the Charity Commissioners in 1963 by a small group of parents and carers of children and adults with learning disabilities. Its charity number is 217526.

In the 50 years or so that it has been running the organisation has provided help, support and social activities to those with learning disabilities and their families in the Shrewsbury area.

Initially it operated from an old temporary building on Albert Road but in 2003 we entered into an agreement with Shropshire Council for them to demolish the building and put up a purpose built Day centre. This centre is run during the day by the Council but Shrewsbury Mencap have the use of the building in the evenings and weekends. Shrewsbury Mencap have retained the ownership of the land which is controlled by 3 Trustees.
