Leonard Cheshire Disability Make Care Fair campaign

Each year 100,000 disabled people are denied the vital care and support they need to carry out the everyday tasks that non-disabled people all take for granted.

Many more are being denied good quality care and support by receiving only 15-minute care visits. If carers don’t even have time to take off their coats, how can they have time to support disabled people with any kind of dignity through their morning routines?

For further information on the Leonard Cheshire Disability ‘Make Care Fair’ campaign see here.


Ask Lord Howe to end 15-minute care visits 

This Wednesday is a special day. We have a real chance to end 15-minute care visits. Health Minister Lord Howe could use a debate in the House of Lords to end short care visits. Or he could let them continue, leaving thousands of disabled people without the vital care they need to carry out the everyday tasks that others take for granted – like getting up, washed and dressed in the mornings. We need your help now to tell Lord Howe to take action –by visiting here.
