Mencap expect to work with JustGiving to create the platform, which will launch in 2013.
The money will be used to help young people exercise greater choice and control over the care they receive from their GP.
As a result, the charity will be launching Barrow RespectAbility later this year, enabling 300 older people to establish and run 6 community ventures in one of England's most deprived boroughs.
We are very pleased to have had a close involvement in not one but two successful Social Action Fund bids!
We led Mind's bid for over £400,000 and advised Mencap on their successful application for more than £600,000.
