Lambeth and Southwark Mencap continues to face serious financial challenges and, as a result, we are very sorry to say we will be closing in the near future, probably in mid to late May 2019.
Like many other charities, we have seen rising costs at the same time as income levels have gone down. We have made changes over a long period to reduce costs and save money, but despite our best efforts, we have reached the point where the organisation is no longer sustainable.
The interests of people using our services are our top priority. We are working with our commissioners, including Lambeth and Southwark Councils, the NHS, and potential providers of these services to ensure continuity of support for the people we help and to safeguard the jobs of those who deliver our service.
We have contacted our service users to let them know of this difficult situation. For the time being, we remain open and our services will continue to be available.
