Leonard Cheshire in Scotland

Who we are

As the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of services to disabled people, we believe disabled people should have the freedom to live, learn and work as independently as they choose. For over 70 years we have supported disabled people. Our 5000 staff and 10,000 volunteers support nearly 70,000 people in the UK and around the world, opening doors to opportunity.

Leonard Cheshire is a local to global pan-disability charity with an established network of community-based services, programmes and supports in Scotland.

We work together in partnership with people with lived experience of disability, organisations across sectors, communities and governments to help promote and support the development of more inclusive communities.

Who we support

People with lived experience of disability, families, friends, carers, employers, organisations across sectors, communities of place, interest, practice and virtual communities. Please see contact information below for more information on how to get involved in our work.

Why we’re an Apt partner

Partnership working is integral to Leonard Cheshire’s inclusive communities approach and our ‘Live, Learn and Work’ strategy. Leonard Cheshire in Scotland joined Apt as the Apt’s aspiration of contributing to reducing the disability employment gap in Scotland aligns with our work and strategic priorities.
