About us

We support people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs. We work across London and the South-East.

We are a registered charity (number 1156486) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (number 8971493).

From October 2017, mcch became part of the Partnership Support Group, along with the charity Choice Support. Both charities continue to operate as separate organisations and we hope to fully integrate in the future.

We support people within a number of different types of services that include:

Our support

Our aim is to enable individuals to live as independently as possible and support them to reach their potential. Our staff are passionate about enabling people to lead fulfilling lives and achieve their aspirations.

We have innovative services that put people at the heart of everything we do. We have been chosen by people with their own budgets to provide them support and always seek to design services around the needs of each person.

Our staff are highly trained and are flexible to meet the needs of the people they support. We make sure that staff have enhanced criminal records bureau checks and that they adhere to our comprehensive policies & procedures.
