  2. Every year on September 21st, the United Nations International Peace Day is observed throughout the world. This year, we all find ourselves against a new, invisible, common enemy. COVD19 is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and very way of life. The virus has unexpectedly thrown our world into turmoil and has reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere. For International #PeaceDay 2020, the United Nations is inviting the world to unite and share thoughts on how to overcome this adversity, heal our planet and change it for the better. Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together. We can celebrate today by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the midst of this pandemic. We are so thankful to our volunteers, donors, supporters and friends for their ongoing support during this period of uncertainty and look forward to when we can all be reunited again! Hopefully, someday soon, all of this will be a reminder of a time where the world united while remaining apart.

  5. Thousands of people have signed our petition calling on Chancellor Rishi Sunak to increase funding for social care. If you haven't already, please add your support at https://secure.mencap.org.uk/hidden-social-care-crisis We want to hit 10,000 signatures and need your help to do it. Our research found that seven out of ten people with a learning disability have seen their social care cut during the lockdown. We want to see commitment from the Government to make sure the crisis in social care does not get any worse for people with a learning disability as well as their carers and families. Thank you for your support.
  6. Hands up - who's watching The Great British Bake Off tonight? Say hello to Cassandra and Tracey, who we support in Dunstable, who have been busy in the kitchen at home.

Well done ladies - it looks delicious!
