Our History

From humble beginnings 

We take pride in our history. We have been serving the communities of Andover and the surrounding areas for over 55 years. What started out as a concerned group of parents whose children had a learning disability, has now turned into a charity which has had over 7000 people access our community services.

1962 - 1964 – The Beginning - The Anton Companions

1964 – 1970 - ‘The Andover Society for Mentally Handicapped Children’ is Born

1970s – We become Andover and District Mencap
