Cambridgeshire Mencap

We have changed our name!


logoOur name is new but we're not. We've been supporting people with learning disabilities in Cambridgeshire for over ten years. We used to be part of Cambridgeshire Mencap, which is why you'll sometimes see that name mentioned on our website. Eddie's continues to provide a wide range of services for children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, and their families and carers. We offer practical support and lots of exciting opportunities.

Cambridgeshire Mencap has also been renamed and is now called The Edmund Trust. This charity will continue to provide a range of domiciliary, supported living and respite services for people with learning disabilities. To find out more about what The Edmund Trust offers please visit www.edmundtrust.org.uk

Over the last few months we have been working with a leading branding consultant and a local design agency to come up with new names for both charities that reflect their shared history. These names make reference to The Edmund House Group of Homes, the original name of the organisation before it became Cambridge and latterly, Cambridgeshire Mencap.

Whether you have been involved with us for many years, or are new to our work, we do hope that you will continue to support us at this exciting time of opportunity. We are committed as ever to our central aim: to empower people with learning disabilities across Cambridgeshire.

To celebrate our new name we are holding a launch event in Cambridge and March. Please click here to download your invitation!
