Leonard Cheshire in Scotland is one of Scotland’s leading disability charities and social care providers. Through all of our work we seek to empower individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose.
In Scotland we provide social care to over 400 disabled people and/or individuals with additional support needs. Across our 42 Scottish social care services, we employ over 800 staff providing person-centred care that empower individuals to lead independent and fulfilling lives at the heart of their communities.
Through all our programmes, we empower disabled people and individuals with additional support needs through volunteering, digital and giving back to the community.
Proceeds from your incredible efforts in the marathon will go towards our innovative Go Digital programme, which empowers disabled people and individuals with additional support needs to access ground-breaking IT equipment. Through this work, we will provide training to staff and volunteers to teach our clients in our social care services, the local community or at their own home how to operate adaptive and assistive technology.
Whether you do 13 or 26 miles, your efforts will allow disabled people and individuals with additional support needs to contact family through Skype, play interactive games, do online shopping and banking, and more, through pioneering technology.
You can only apply to one Affiliate Charity at a time. For further information on how the Charity Entry process works please see our FAQs.
