About Mecap's Big Tea Party

At Mencap, we know there are people with a learning disability who don't always have opportunities to socialise.

One of our recent surveys revealed that almost 1 in 3 young people with a learning disability spend less than 1 hour outside their homes on a typical Saturday.

You can help us change this and support people with a learning disability by raising funds at your own Mencap Big Tea Party!

Get your party essentials!

We've created some brilliant resources to help you plan and hold your party.

Once you've signed up you can download invites, bunting and posters. We'll also send you your free pack.
