Have You Heard Of The Leonard Cheshire Can Do Programme?


If you’re looking to develop your skills in the near future, you might find the Leonard Cheshire Can Do programme of particular interest, aimed at young people aged between 16 and 35 with additional needs.

The idea behind the programme is to give people the opportunity to make a difference, both to themselves and their local communities, as well as helping them meet new people, pick up some new skills and have lots of fun, all at the same time.

You can work towards achieving an SQA personal achievements ward or a City & Guilds certificate if this is something you’re interested in pursuing, with Can Do groups all over the UK so it’s likely that there will be a group near you that you can get involved with.

The programme is free, with all training and expenses covered, with extra support provided if required. It could prove useful to see what other people have been doing, with activities including fundraising activities, preparing food and packages for homeless people, brightening up local communities with graffiti and mosaics, campaigning, sporting activities and so on.

All the projects focus on skills development and confidence building, with community-based and virtual sessions now on offer.

Leonard Cheshire itself has been supporting disabled people for over 70 years, working with various partners to open doors to opportunities and breaking down barriers that deny disabled people their basic rights.

It aims to ensure that disabled people feel respected, valued and safe, able to choose how and where they live, as well as participating freely in social and leisure activities.
