Our international department delivers innovative and inclusive development programmes and research, working closely with local partner organisations and institutions. By 2020 we aim to double our impact, enriching lives and promoting independence for more than 100,000 people with disabilities across Africa and Asia.
We work across Africa and Asia to support disabled children to go to school, and disabled adults to find work. Our research team at the Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre at University College London is world-renowned. We are also part of a global network of over 200 independently managed Cheshire services, supporting disabled people in 54 countries.
Based in our Head Office in London, you could be joining our team as a Programme Manager, Learning, Impact and Quality Manager or a PA. The team is committed to delivering an ambitious new five year strategy that aims to extend our reach, influence and impact across the globe.
We are a UK-based global organisation with five regional offices in South Asia, East Asia and the Pacific, West Africa, East and North Africa and Southern Africa.
We also support over 200 independently managed Cheshire partner organisations in 54 countries in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe through the Leonard Cheshire Disability Global Alliance.
Our ambitious five-year international strategy aims to enrich lives and promote independence for more than 100,000 people with disabilities across Africa and Asia.
We have set ourselves five targets for 2020:
Our countries of focus are Bangladesh, China, India, Kenya, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We have established local partners in these countries whom we have worked with for a number of years.
