Leonard Cheshire

Leonard Cheshire recognises there are significant benefits from volunteering, such as gaining new skills, increasing confident, becoming more included in society and benefiting from general improvements in health, wellbeing and happiness.  However, we are also aware that disabled people are underrepresenting in volunteering role.  This is often because disabled people face challenges which are not a result of the individual disability or medical condition, but a result of the attitudinal and environmental challenges created by society. 

Leonard Cheshire’s Can Do programme will support social action and the #iwill campaign in order to encourage and support young disabled people to engage in social action throughout their lives.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
