SNAP is Mayor’s Charity

The city’s leading charity for people with learning disabilities has been named as the Mayor’s Charity of the Year.

MK SNAP are also celebrating three decades of providing education, life and work skills to help people with learning disabilities live as independently as possible.

Mayor Amanda Marlow is a mother who faces the challenges of the complex nature of disability head-on daily. She said within the first five minutes of her visit to MK SNAP, she knew the organisation had to be one of her two charities. 

Councillor of Loughton and Shenley and vice-chair and parent governor of the special needs Redway School in Netherfield, Mayor Marlow said she will be championing the skills and confidence it provides for people with learning disabilities to realise their potential.

MK SNAP CEO Angela Novell said: “Being chosen as one of the mayors’ charities will help us reach those people who are most in need of our support. We are honoured and excited for our mayoral year.”

MK SNAP are also encouraging local firms to become a SNAP Dragon and breathe fire into the impact of a Corporate Social Responsibility programme.

The charity provides a daily programme of life-skills, health and well-being and work preparation sessions including computing, art and craft, gardening, cooking and sports at their purpose-built centre in Milton Keynes.

Become a SNAP Dragon with MK SNAP and you will be teaming up with MK Mayor’s 2022-23 Charity of the Year and transforming lives of people with learning disabilities.

In return your staff will feel motivated, inspired and valued while having great time and learning more about the lives of people with learning disabilities.
