Legal toolkits: know your rights

Our advice guides are here to provide advocates of people with a learning disability information on a range of topics, from housing and education to health and social care.

If you are a family member, support worker or advocate to someone with a learning disability, these guides also aim to give you peace of mind by offering clear and practical advice.

Social care



Due to recently enacted legislation the Applying for specialist further education provision: young people aged 16-2 (Published 8 September 2015, last updated February 2017)  toolkit has been removed and is currently being updated.

The toolkit will be available again as soon as the updates have been made.

If you have any questions please contact the Mencap WISE Helpline on 0808 8000 300.
