Royal Mencap Society

Royal Mencap is the UK's leading charity for people with a learning disability. In the UK, funding for social care has been cut by over 50% under austerity measures and many people are being left without vital support. With the charity, Fieldfisher has been providing legal advice and representation to people with a learning disability who are being denied the right social care support.

“Support via this clinic provides much needed additional resource to our legal team. This enables us to support more families who are often grappling with complex and urgent situations on their own. The volunteers at Fieldfisher are extremely committed to the clients they support and this shows in the outstanding results they have achieved. ”

"I felt understood. I felt my views were heard… I felt terrified yet supported by those around me… I had a voice in the mightiest court in the land."

"I know for a fact that had you not been involved with the case, I would have had to return to work with no resolution for my brother's care needs."
