At Leonard Cheshire we support individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability. Led by people with experience of disability, we are at the heart of local life — opening doors to opportunity, choice and support in communities around the globe. We work to support communities to be inclusive for all, where the whole community equally values all its members because of, not despite, our differences.
