What is a Cheshire Home?

Cheshire homes are a worldwide organization looking after the incurably sick and physically handicapped for whom hospital cannot do anything. They were founded by Leonard Cheshire in 1948. Disabled persons are admitted according to their need, irrespective of race, creed or social status.

The residents enjoy the freedom of religious thought. Britain has the largest number of Cheshire Homes. Each home is run by a local committee which raises funds to run it.
