Welcome to the Mencap Trust Company Ltd

It’s natural to worry what will happen to your loved ones when you are no longer around — even more so when your loved one has a learning disability and/or autism.

Mencap Trust Company can help alleviate some of this worry by helping you plan a financially secure future for those you leave behind.

Protect their future

If you’ve been thinking about setting up a trust for a family member who has a learning disability (and/or autism), and you want to:

  • safeguard their benefits and entitlements
  • ensure legal or financial responsibility for your family member is not placed on family or friends
  • make allowances for unforeseen family circumstances that could prevent other family members taking on the trust — like poor health or premature death
  • appoint a trustee who is well informed about learning disability rights and the needs of people with a learning disability
  • choose a permanent, professional body who is experienced in trust law

Covid-19 - We're still here for you

Mencap Trust Company began working from home before the national lockdown was announced in March 2020 so that we could continue our work to protect the financial future of people with learning disabilities and autism. We hope that you can understand if things take a little longer than usual until we can safely reopen our office and get back to full capacity. 

We assure you that our duty of care remains to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of our staff and our beneficiaries. We are regularly reviewing our safety procedures with the help and support of Public Health England and other health professionals to ensure that we are adhering to Government guidelines. 

In order to protect both our staff and our beneficiaries, we have ceased all of our face-to-face visits, and instead we are conducting these virtually or over the phone whenever they are required. 

If you wish to speak to a member of our team, you can always call 0207 696 6932 or email mtc@mencaptrust.org.uk, we will be happy to set up a virtual meeting. 

We thank you for your understanding during this time and look forward to seeing you all face-to-face again when it is safe to do so.
