For Activism Week this year, we're spreading the word that a small act can make a big difference. 🙌

The organisation that stands as Mencap today was founded by Judy Fryd 75 years ago. 🙂

Out of frustration at the lack of support and provision for her daughter, Felicity, Judy wrote a letter to Nursery Word magazine asking if any other parents of children with a  learning disability were going through the same thing. ✍

That small act of writing a letter led to over 1000 responses from other parents, kick-started the movement to create change for people with a learning disability, and the eventual creation of Mencap. 

Thanks Judy. ❤

It's that time again - it's Activism Week! 📣

Activism does not always mean doing something huge or running a big event. 

Mencap was founded by the incredible parent, carer and activist Judy Fryd - and everything started with her writing a letter to Nursey World Magazine. ✍

And no we're celebrating out 75th anniversary this year, and want use Activism Week to show you that anyone can be an activist . 🙂

It can be as simple as writing a letter. 📜

Join us this week as we share things that you can do to be an everyday activist. 👍fb://photo/10159703937471354?set=a.10150173696766354
