Bromley Mencap’s continuous action on behalf of disabled people, their parents and carers, is based on the principle that their clients have a need and right to live like others in the community, and to have a reasonable quality of life. To fulfill these aims, we employ a Chief Executive and a team of full and part time staff which is supported by a loyal group of volunteers.
We provide a range of services and activities for disabled people, and their parents and carers.
Bromley Parent Voice
Bromley Parent Voice (BPV) is a voluntary group of parents and carers of children and young people (0-25) with special/additional needs and disabilities (SEND) living in the London Borough of Bromley:
We provide an opportunity for parents and carers to express their views and input into the planning and delivery of SEND services.
We signpost, support and empower families to obtain the best possible support and services for their children.
Bromley Youth Council
Bromley Youth Council is a borough-wide body run by and for young people aged 11-19 (up to 25 for young people with disabilities). Young people are elected to represent their peers through annual youth elections in the borough. The youth council has close links with schools, youth services and other representative bodies of young people.
Bromley Youth Council enables young people to have a say in how local services are organised and connects them with local democracy. The Youth Council meets regularly to discuss issues which are relevant to young people in Bromley and works to influence policy and development within the local authority on behalf of young people.
Bromley Y is a long established local charity offering free therapeutic support to young people between the ages of 0 – 18 years. Bromley Y aims to provide a safe, friendly environment for children, young people and their families to explore the difficulties that they may be experiencing, helping them to identify new ways forward.
We aim to provide the highest quality, non-discriminatory service for young people and their families who live in Bromley or who are registered with a Bromley GP surgery.

Scouting helps our young improve their key skills, including social skills, teamwork ability, leadership ability and confidence. Our volunteers also enjoy the benefits of Scouting by learning new skills, making new friends and enjoying a social life with a purpose. There are hundreds of different volunteer roles on offer, from management positions, running activities to behind the scenes roles like driving the minibus or painting and decorating.
Our varied and exciting programme offers hundreds of activities, from camping and hiking to surfing and paragliding. Young people can also achieve their badges in such diverse subjects as PR, electronics and entertainment.
Toddler Sense introduces a whole new world of adventure for toddlers and children. Great music, great equipment and great new ideas! Imagine climbing a snow mountain, going on safari, digging for fossils, swimming with dolphins and hunting for dinosaurs? Every week introduces a whole new adventure. The main emphasis is on mobility, excitement and adventure. It is a fast-moving, action-packed programme. Toddler Sense is very different to Baby Sensory, but equally addictive.
