About Us

Our Background

Andover & District Mencap is a local charity that began delivering services for individuals with learning disabilities over 50 years ago. Since then our organisation has grown and the services we are able to offer to our local community have increased. We deliver care and support in the homes of local adults, children and young people with both learning and physical disabilities. We are also very proud to be able to offer a wide range of exciting clubs and activities to our service users at our purpose built centre which is close to the centre of Andover.

Training by Andover & District Mencap

Having delivered care and support services for over 50 years we understand the challenges the sector faces in ensuring that employees are appropriately trained. The cost of training can be astronomical and can quickly price some providers out of providing the training their staff need.

In 2018 we set out to improve the availability of affordable training courses that don't compromise on quality. We are proud to be able to offer other providers, and organisations from other sectors, access to our fully accredited courses. While online training can be very effective when used correctly we strongly believe that there are some training topics that are best delivered face-to-face. We aim to make face-to-face training a reality again for providers like us and to work with our customers to help drive up the standards of learning and development in the Health and Social Care sector.

Being a provider of care and support services we also understand that these services are not simply a 9-5 job! We are pleased to be able to offer flexibility in when our courses can be run and are happy to offer weekend and evening training sessions to meet the needs of our customers and their staff.

Get in touch today to find out how we can support you to ensure that your staff are getting the quality training they need.

Our mission is to provide high quality, affordable and engaging training courses across the health and social care sector and beyond.

We believe that the quality of the training employees receive makes a huge difference to how confidently they are able to meet the expectations of their customers.

As a care provider for over 50 years we understand the challenges faced by the sector, with training budgets that are continually squeezed, which is why we are proud to offer affordable courses that don't compromise on quality.
