Leonard Cheshire is the leading charity provider of care and support to people with physical and learning disabilities, both in the UK, and in more than 50 countries around the world.
For the past 50 years, our services have enabled people with a wide range of disabilities to lead more fulfilling lives.
Our services have changed over the last 50 years, but our philosophy has remained the same. We have always worked with disabled people, to provide each person with choice about how they live their life.
In the UK today, we run 140 services, creating opportunities with more than 10,000 disabled people. Our international services operate over 200 services in 50 countries, providing support to a further 15,000 disabled people throughout the world.
We work in partnership with people with a wider range of disabilities than any other charity - enabling people with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, learning disabilities, acquired brain injury and sports or industrial injuries to live lives of opportunity.
Over the past 50 years, we have developed a diverse range of services in response to the ever changing requirements and aspirations of our service users. Our services now include care at home, independent and supported living, residential and nursing care, day services, respite care - and countless other services which are individually tailored to ensure that every one of our service users can take full advantage of life.
These services provide a broad spectrum of flexible and appropriate support - for people with severe disabilities who need high level nursing care, right through to those who require only occasional help and support.
We also enable people throughout the world to gain access to education and employment, to take holidays, to make the most of their leisure time, and to have opportunities for self development.
The key to all of our services is enabling disabled people to take control of their lives - and this extends to the way Leonard Cheshire operates as an organisation. Disabled people bring first hand knowledge and experience to key staff posts in the charity and its volunteer advisory committees, nationally and internationally. This ensures that disabled people are in control of the way Leonard Cheshire moves forward into the next millennium.
Our success in working with disabled people throughout the last 50 years has been dependent upon a worldwide network of professional staff and countless volunteers. But it still would simply not happen without our supporters, who so generously donate their time and money to create these opportunities.
The success of Leonard Cheshire involves all sorts of people - and that could include you. Please read about the people on the following pages and ask yourself if there is anything you could do to help - perhaps it's a skill you can share, or perhaps you can give your time to volunteer, or perhaps you would be prepared to make a donation to our work.
