Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

How We Help

Outreach

Our Outreach Co-ordinator will come and visit you when you get in touch with us to find out how we can work with you in the best way.

We can work with you for 6 – 12 weeks around different issues that might affect your life. For example you may not feel comfortable or confident getting out and about in your local community.

Or perhaps you feel a bit isolated and would like to find new things to do. You may even be a parent or carer of someone with a learning disability and feel you need some support yourself.

Befriending

We can put our members in touch with potential friends with shared interests. Befriending is all about meeting someone new. We can match you with a volunteer befriender – someone you can meet up with and do different with things with.

Your befriender will like doing the same things as you. Mencap Liverpool will support you and your befriender to make friends.

Socials (face to face activities suspended until further notice)

We connect people who have spent a lifetime in social isolation giving them a network of support and new friendships.
