Campaigning

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued and treated equally. We challenge wrong ways of thinking about learning disability and strive to empower and include all people.

2015 – Hear My Voice in Kent This film showcases the work we did as part of National Mencap's Hear My Voice campaign. The project engaged people with a learning disability in the democratic process and supported them to understand and sign up to the electoral register for the 2015 General Election.

2016 - Changing Kent Communities This film showcases the work of our District Partnership Groups in supporting people with a learning disability to become more independent and engage with their local community.

A film documenting DPG campaign work is currently in production and will demonstrate the positive impact that people with a learning disability can have on their own lives. (October 2016)

Major expansion

We have finally completed the purchase of Foresters Hall in Ramsgate after Thanet District Council agreed to sell the property through a Community Asset Transfer. Foresters Hall, which includes a listed building from 1811, as well as other properties, will provide us with much needed space to expand its services for people with a learning disability and their families.
East Kent Mencap requires a support worker for the supported living service in a 4 bedded property in Herne Bay and to work with community based individuals in the surrounding areas. You will work shifts on a flexible rota pattern and this will include evenings, weekend, bank holidays (enhanced pay available) and sleep-in’s (payable at £70.47 per night). As a full time employee of East Kent Mencap who is covering two sleep-ins a week, you will earn between £21,829.92 and £24,273.40 per annum.
If you live life to the full, come and support others to do the same? Every day you will help someone to achieve the things they never thought they could do! We are currently offering a part time contract (15 hours) for an enthusiastic support worker in our Herne Bay Resource Centre. Ideally, you will have experience of working in a Resource Centre or have creative/artistic skills.
East Kent Mencap is looking to recruit a number of support workers (full time and part time) to join our rapidly expanding support team in Swale. Our clients will be supported with their daily living skills such as accessing the community, shopping, cooking, and budgeting, this will be achieved by following person centred plans and the individual’s support plan.
