Meet us

Who are we?

Who are we?

Eddie’s is an award-winning charity based in Waterbeach. We have been supporting people with learning disabilities in Cambridgeshire for over ten years and we used to be part of Cambridgeshire Mencap. Our history spans 70 years.

Our vision is a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included. We want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the things they want out of life.

We’re an important, local provider of community services and support to children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and family carers in Cambridgeshire. We aim to help the people we support with increased confidence, more effective social inclusion, improved skills, and reduced financial and social hardship.

Our community-based activities help people with learning disabilities to do the things they enjoy, make new friends and learn new skills.

In 2016/17, we supported 650 children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and their families and carers across Cambridgeshire. Volunteers are critical to the success of our charity with over 135 regular volunteers helping to deliver services but we always need more!
