We are currently looking to expand our team of employees after developing a range of services aimed at supporting children, young people and adults with a learning disability, all of whom will have a wide range of complex physical, behavioural and communication needs.
Carriers for Causes grants support projects that ‘benefit local communities - helping to improve lives and local places’. They are available for good causes within two miles of a One Stop shop. Many members of East Kent Mencap will be familiar with the friendly staff at the One Stop Shop in Northdown Road, so we were hopeful when we sent off a request to fund trips for the young people accessing our holiday clubs.
