Their founder, Leonard Cheshire, started the charity in 1948. The story is inspiring.
On 22nd May 1948, former RAF pilot Leonard Cheshire took a dying man, who had nowhere else to go, into his home. With no money, Leonard nursed the man himself. They became friends and this one act of kindness saw many more people coming to Leonard for help, people who were keen to share a home with others and all chip in together.
Almost without him having to try, by the summer of 1949 his home of Le Court, in Hampshire, had 24 residents with complex needs, illnesses and impairments. As word spread, referrals came from the new NHS hospitals already struggling to cope with waiting lists of people needing urgent care.
Now with over 100 homes in the UK, they provide thousands of disabled people with housing and quality care. We take great pleasure in being able to serve them.
