Congratulations to their rep Lucy McKane for entering the recent campaign ‘Win a month of free donations’.
All donations unlocked by anonymous shoppers via TheGivingMachine in April will go to this cause!
Sheffield Mencap & Gateway was set up in 1951 by parents of children with learning disabilities who wanted to give their children a better life and continues to exist to support people with learning disabilities in Sheffield.
That’s the official line. But what that actually means is that here at Norfolk Lodge we help people to make the most of their lives: to get a little more independence, to find friendship or a partner and to find a job, or fulfilling daytime activity. In other words, our members have the same goals and hopes as everyone else – but facing greater barriers to overcome on the way.
Our mission shows a commitment to people with a learning disability and their families through:
Sheffield Mencap and Gateway’s services are available to anyone in Sheffield with a learning disability and to their families. It is for women, men, young and old, wealthy or poor, people of any religious faith or of none.
Sheffield Mencap and Gateway works with all who want to improve the quality of life for people with a learning disability. It works in partnership and co-operates with all statutory and voluntary agencies that share its aims
