Lambeth and Southwark Mencap faced serious financial challenges and, as a result, we discontinued providing services on 31st May 2019.

Like many other charities, we had seen rising costs at the same time as income levels had gone down. We made changes over a long period to reduce costs and save money, but despite our best efforts, we reached the point where the organisation is no longer sustainable.

The interests of people using our services have been our top priority. We worked with our commissioners, including Lambeth and Southwark Councils, the NHS, and providers of services to ensure continuity of support for the people we help. Contact your Council social worker if you need additional services, and see other Resources HERE (LINK TO OUR CARERS PAGE)
