We Care for Equality
Disabled people have the right to good social care. We're campaigning to make that right a reality.
We are Leonard Cheshire and we provide support to people with disabilities to live, learn and work as independently as they choose whatever their ability.
We believe in building a fairer, more inclusive society. One that recognises the positive contributions we all make.
"Getting involved with Leonard Cheshire was a game-changer. For years I thought I wouldn't find paid work that suited my campaigning skills because of my disability. But Leonard Cheshire gave me the chance to develop my skills and build my experience."
Joshua Reeves, Campaigns Support Officer (Wales)

"I've become an expert in frugality, owing to the ever-increasing difficulty of making ends meet on disability benefits that have not been adequately adjusted for inflation and rising costs."
