We are a history resource on Leonard Cheshire Disability campaigns.
They have moved to new website, you can visit new Leonard Cheshire website here.
Leonard Cheshire is a registered charity providing a range of high quality services for people with physical and learning disabilities, and support for carers, both in the UK and throughout the world.
Most health authorities are unable to fund long-term care for people with Acquired Brain Injury and hospital discharge arrangements with social services departments are, at best, haphazard.
Leonard Cheshire currently receives an inquiry per day about services for people with ABI. However, recent research by the charity shows that support services for people with ABI are not a priority in local authorities’ community care plans. Yet, cost-benefit analysis clearly indicates that post-injury rehabilitation is more than justified by savings in long-term care.
Headway and Leonard Cheshire have many practical examples where co-ordination has worked well to provide integrated services across a range of different care settings, offering a flexible and responsive range of services. Headway currently runs a day service for people with ABI from Leonard Cheshire premises in Sussex.
