Mencap (Help for people with Learning Disabilities)

Posted on May 13th, 2020

At the moment a lot of people are worried about coronavirus. We have been asked lots of questions about what coronavirus and the lockdown means for people with a learning disability, like:

  • Am I allowed out?
  • How often can I exercise?
  • How do I explain social distancing to my family member with a learning disability?
  • What do the Care Act easements mean for me?

We have also been able to help some people with their concerns about the NICE guidelines and what would happen if they needed to go to hospital. There have been so many changes recently, but we have answers to many current questions.

You can also ask us questions about things that aren’t to do with coronavirus. We may be able to help you with questions about social care, money and benefits, the Mental Capacity Act (best interests, capacity decisions), health and assessments, and treatment units.

You can call the Learning Disability Helpline on 0808 808 1111, we’re here from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday. Or you can fill in our online form or email us at helpline@mencap.org.uk.
