Why work for us?

For more than 70 years, we have championed the rights of disabled people. We open doors to opportunity and break down barriers that deny disabled people their basic rights.

What's it like?

We have great people working for us and we're always looking for ways to improve. We ensure a diverse, inclusive, and collaborative work environment that you can be proud to be part of.

Our values

We are the leader in enriching the lives of disabled people.

Our founder, Leonard Cheshire, laid the foundations of our work today in May 1948, when he took a dying man into his home and nursed him by himself. From these roots, we have led the way in establishing effective ways of supporting disabled people, currently reaching over 20,000 disabled people over our global operations.

Change takes commitment

Working to ensure a better world for disabled people is rewarding but we can't make that change without empowering you. These are some of the ways we support you to succeed.

Time for a rewarding career change?

Help us change the world for disabled people.

We've got roles in a variety of areas. You could be supporting the development of an international programme, enriching the lives of customers or working on a national campaign.

Care and support

Our care and support staff provide a high level of support to the people in our services. With 90% of our services rated 'good' or 'outstanding' with regulators, it's clear we have some of the best carers supporting our customers and we want to see more talented carers join us.


There are a range of office roles within our organisation. You could be working in HR, finance, procurement, marketing and fundraising, facilities, and more. You could be helping us recruit the talent for our future, developing national campaigns, and more to support our mission to be a global pan-disability partner.

Professional services

If you're a registered nurse, physiotherapist, or another clinical care professional, we have a range of opportunities for you. We look for those who can provide the highest standards of nursing, clinical and personal support while promoting independence and choice.
