Together We Make A Difference
At Leonard Cheshire we support individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability.
2 key aspects of this work are led by our Partnerships and Technology Directorates. Our Partnerships team manages our corporate and voluntary sector relationships, supports our 10,000 volunteers, provides training and consultancy and delivers confidence building, digital inclusion and employment programmes for people with disabilities, supporting over 7,000 people each year. We support individuals to get out and about, fulfil their ambitions and live the independent lives they want. We do this by partnering with organisations who share our vision for us all to play our part in creating a fair and inclusive society.
We are midway through a multi–million pound technology investment programme to enhance the quality of service experienced by all those we support in our 150 UK services, as well as to upgrade the technology across our organisation. Technology also has the power to transform the lives of disabled people. Through assistive equipment and technology, we run pioneering projects through our Director of Assistive Technology that can have a huge impact on confidence, independence and choice.
