About Leonard Cheshire Disability (Can Do Programme)

Leonard Cheshire Disability is a charity supporting disabled people in the UK and around the world to fulfil their potential and live the lives they choose. For over 65 years, we 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
We make a difference to the lives of thousands of people by supporting them to develop skills through employment, volunteering and digital inclusion projects. We campaign alongside disabled people to bring about changes for the better, and to challenge ignorance and unfairness in society.
Internationally, we are part of a Global Alliance of Leonard Cheshire charities which works to improve the lives of disabled people in 54 countries.
Can Do is a volunteering community programme for disabled people aged 16 to 35. We aim to help people:
- learn and develop new skills
- build self-confidence and independence
- meet new people and make new friends
- raise awareness on issues that are important to you
- be more socially active in your community
We provide training, cover all expenses and offer extra support as needed. You can volunteer and combine it with study or work.
As the leading UK disability charity, we welcome applications from disabled volunteers and are happy to discuss individual support requirements. Can Do is open to people with a long term health condition or disability, including physical, visual or hearing impairments, mental health conditions and learning disabilities like dyslexia and dyspraxia.
