Who we are

News and media

The media and PR team provides a full service to journalists on Leonard Cheshire Disability's work, including the care and support we give to disabled people, our policy and campaigning work, and fundraising and employment initiatives.

We can provide you with:

  • expert spokespeople for interviews
  • up-to-date statistics on disability
  • interviews with disabled people who are happy to share their stories with the media
  • historical facts on our founder and on the charity from our extensive archive

Leonard Cheshire Disability aims to be, at all times, non-partisan in our activities. We do not usually comment on leaks or rumours and will not be drawn into politically-motivated debates that are based on partial information.
