Rescare was established in 1984 to promote the welfare of children and adults with learning disabilities and their families. We are a small national charity based in Stockport run by families of people with learning disabilities. The first-hand experience of our committee, staff and members gives us a particular insight into the problems associated with learning disability, and especially into the pressures on family carers.

Helpline - We offer advice on all aspects of learning disability from childhood diagnosis to elderly care, our dedicated staff have in depth knowledge of The Care Act, The Mental Capacity Act, Special Education Needs and Disability Regulations etc.

Digital Media - Our website is up-to-date and informative, featuring news and blog posts, we also have a Facebook and Twitter presence.

Campaigning - We have a long history of campaigning for choice in how learning disabled people should be helped to enjoy a fulfilling life. We contribute to consultations by central government and organisations such as the Law Commission, including most green papers that relate to disability or care matters.

All of our funding comes from members and supporters and we would be extremely grateful if you were able to remember us in your will and allow us to carry on our work
