Who are we?

We are Leonard Cheshire - supporting individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability. Led by people with experience of disability, we are at the heart of local life - opening doors to opportunity, choice and support in communities around the globe.

Why should I support Leonard Cheshire?

Like our founder, we believe that diversity creates a world of possibility. Through pioneering research and innovation we are building a fairer, more inclusive society. One that recognises the positive contributions we all make, and where we are all proud to play our part.

Leading by example, we do everything humanly possible to empower people to live their lives as freely and as fully as they choose.

Where does you money go?

We receive statutory funding from the government, but this only enables us to provide a basic level of care. The extra money we raise through fundraising enables us to provide innovative services and a more personal level of care to help our service users to live their life their way.

£50   will pay for a ‘Jumbo’ computer keyboard for people with limited movement in their hands or for people with visual impairments.

£100  will fund a couple of hours mentoring with a business specialist trained in understanding disabled people’s differing needs to help find employment.

£200 could pay to train two teachers in the third world the skills they need to teach disabled children and non-disabled children together.

£500 could buy a ‘walker’ to help a person with cerebral palsy to maintain their strength and flexibility and move about more independently.

£800 will buy a touch screen monitor enabling people with limited movement in their hands to broadcast a radio programme from our Ability Media Centre.

£1,000 could buy a specially designed fully adjustable bed, enabling a resident to get in and out of bed easily.

£2,000 could buy a ‘tilt table’ to provide pain relief and help breathing, digestion, bone density and posture for a disabled person with little or no movement in their limbs.
