Grantham Mencap Mothers Group was founded in 1980 by a group of Mothers/Carers, whose children had learning disabilities.
Concerned about the immediate and long-term future for their children, they met with Representatives from education, health and Social Services to try and improve the services offered to them.
Many felt that just to meet with others in the same situation was a great help, to talk over problems and support one another.
"Many of our children are now adults, we still meet once a month for a coffee and chat, helping one another with the various difficulties we face."
We welcome new Mums/Carers and can provide support, for example to find out where to get help.
We meet on the second Wednesday of the month (except August) from 10.00 am at Fairview Farm Residential Home.
