About us

Leonard Cheshire Disability is a charity supporting disabled people in the UK and around the world to fulfil their potential and live the lives they choose.


We work for a society in which every person is equally valued. We believe disabled people should have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose. To have the opportunity and support to live independently, to contribute and participate fully in society.

That belief is at the heart of everything we do.

For over 65 years, we have supported disabled people in many different ways, to reflect what they tell us they want. This includes providing care in:

We make a difference to the lives of thousands of people by supporting them to develop skills through employment, volunteering and digital inclusion projects.

We campaign alongside disabled people to bring about changes for the better, and to challenge ignorance and unfairness in society.

Internationally, we are part of a Global Alliance of Leonard Cheshire charities which works to improve the lives of disabled people in 54 countries.
