Burton upon Trent MENCAP are delighted to announce the re-opening of their Coffee Shop on Friday 20th September 2019 from 9.30 till 12.30 at the Brewhouse, Union Street, Burton.

We are a local charity run by volunteers who fund raise to support people in Burton with a learning disability.  We have been a registered charity since 1967 and ran a coffee shop at Crossley House until November last year.

Carers Support - potential bidding partnership call

As many of you will be aware, the county council and partners currently invest in a service delivered as the Carers Hub, by People Plus.

We believe this service will be reshaped over the next year and anticipate a new service being awarded, to be delivered from September 2020. It’s not yet clear which funders will be investing in the service in the future, but we do understand the county council we continue to invest in a service.
