Our Helpline number – 0161 477 1640

The helpline will attempt to reply to most questions relating to learning disability, and in particular to its impact on family carers; questions received often relate to health care, social care, education and housing provision. Note: we can give information on legislation relating to learning disability e.g. the Mental Capacity Act, the role of the Court of Protection, the Children and Families Act, the Care Act 2014, but cannot give specific legal advice.

Rescare also supports campaigns run by its members, and may endorse the campaigns of other organisations and charities as it sees appropriate. Rescare lobbies MPs, ministers and agencies such as the Law Commission, on changes to legislation and policy, and responds to many consultations on issues relating to learning disability.
