The Friends of Dartford Road (previously MacIntyre)
This is a supported living house in Sevenoaks which also supports a number of individuals via outreach services.
Mencap works in partnership with people with learning disabilities, providing services to support them to live life as they choose.
It provides high-quality, flexible services that allow people to live as independently as possible with advice given through helplines and websites. Mencap also campaigns for the changes that people with learning disabilities want.
Mencap has strong relations with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. Mencap’s local groups are individual charities in their own right, but are guided by the group to ensure people with learning disabilities and their families have support locally as well as nationally.
