Livelihoods

Unemployment rates for people with disabilities of 80% and higher are frequently found in developing countries. 

We have supported over 26,000 people with disabilities into paid or self-employment in Africa and Asia, and provided skills training for over 67,000.

Our innovative ‘Livelihoods Resource Centres’ act as one-stop-shops for people with disabilities seeking employment, providing training, career guidance and links between employees and employers. They are unique in offering the full range of support that people with disabilities need when looking for jobs or becoming self-employed.

Our livelihoods projects are implemented with local partners, many of whom are part of the Leonard Cheshire Global Alliance.
