Changing attitudes.

LEONARD Cheshire Disability exists to change attitudes to disability and to serve disabled people around the world.

It provides a range of services in support of disabled people including care homes, supported living, domiciliary support, day services, resource centres, rehabilitation, respite care, personal support and training and assistance for those looking for work.

It operates in all parts of the UK and is the largest voluntary sector provider of care and support services for disabled people. Campaigning for the civil and human rights of disabled people is also a key activity for the charity.

Its breadth of experience, knowledge and constituency of disabled people gives it a unique platform from which to engage in public debate and to campaign on the social policy and civil rights issues that have an impact on disabled people.

Leonard Cheshire Disability works with over 21,000 disabled people in the UK, through local services such as The Minories Day Service in Roseberry Crescent in Newcastle.
