Our Mission: Grove Cottage provides social and educational activities for people of all ages with a learning disability to develop their potential, help them to avoid social isolation by supporting lifelong friendships and to provide respite to their families and carers.
Our Vision: A world in which every individual with a learning disability has the opportunity to learn, and develop, integrate into society and exercise choices and where their families can have a regular family life.
Grove Cottage is the home of Mencap in Bishop’s Stortford. Grove Cottage has an open-door policy and will support people regardless of location, if you can get to us then we are delighted to help you.
Grove Cottage is a registered charity managed by a board of Trustees with a wealth of experience of special needs and education.
Grove Cottage is affiliated with The Royal Mencap Society but is run independently and receives no funding from the national body.
We run all our clubs with a mix of part time staff and volunteers. Without their amazing dedication and commitment, Grove Cottage would not exist. Click here to find out how you can get involved.
