About Leonard Cheshire
Our charity supports disabled people both in the UK and globally to fulfil their potential.
We work for a society in which every person is equally valued. We believe disabled people should have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose. To have the opportunity and support, to live independently, to contribute and participate fully in society.
That belief is at the heart of everything we do.
For over 65 years, we have supported disabled people in many different ways, including care in people’s own homes, day centres and respite services.
Leonard Cheshire welcomes applications from all sections of the community. We actively encourage applications from people with a disability, supporting where possible, your requirements for reasonable adjustments.
A satisfactory disclosure check (PVG membership in Scotland) is required for this post.
Shortlisting for this role will take place as applications are received. We therefore reserve the right to close this vacancy once suitable candidates have been appointed.
