Much has changed for the better since Leonard Cheshire started a movement in 1948 that would transform hundreds of thousands of disabled people’s lives.

But in 2022 more than one billion disabled people, 15% of the world’s population, are still one of the most disadvantaged and marginalised groups within society. They are routinely denied their most basic human rights — cut off from education, employment and healthcare. Many live in extreme poverty.

Imagine a world where disabled people have the same opportunities to live, learn and work as those without disabilities. A gift in your will to Leonard Cheshire will help us create that society. Led by people with experience of disability, every day Leonard Cheshire opens doors to opportunity, choice and support in communities around the globe.

Your gift could help a disabled person into school, gain qualifications, find a job or create their own business, so they can support themselves and their families and play a full part in their local community.

Like our founder, we believe that diversity creates a world of possibility. Through pioneering research, innovation and campaigning, we’re building a fairer, more inclusive society. One that recognises the positive contributions we all make, and where we are all proud to play our part. We invite you to be part of our future through a gift in your will.
