Leonard Cheshire Disability is an International organization with its Head Quarters in UK , working for the rehabilitation of Differently Abled around the world. The organization has its presence in 54 countries. The charity was originally known as The Cheshire Foundation Homes for the sick. In 1976 it became the Leonard Cheshire Foundation and in 2007 adopted its current name, Leonard Cheshire Disability.
The organization was founded in 1948 by Group Captain Geoffrey Leonard Cheshire, a highly decorated World War II Royal Air Force pilot and philanthropist.
Cheshire Homes work for a society in which every person is equally valued. Cheshire Homes believes disabled people should have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose. And to have the opportunity and support to live independently, to contribute towards the mankind and participating fully in society, they have come together to provide the opportunity to the specially-abled people.
That belief is at the heart of everything we do.
For over 65 years, Cheshire Homes have supported disabled people in many different ways, to reflect what they tell us they want. This includes providing care in:
- people’s own homes
- supported rented accommodation
- residential homes
- day centres
- respite services
Cheshire Homes (International) strategy 2017 — 2022
In March 2017, Cheshire Homes agreed with a new strategy of ‘Supporting Journeys toward Independence’. It has provided a renewed and unifying purpose. Staff, volunteers and supporters, working together with the people they serve, it drives everything we do, from daily activities to large multi-year initiatives. This is what keeps Cheshire Homes going.
