The Ryder-Cheshire Foundation New Zealand

We support the Ryder-Cheshire services in New Zealand, India and Timor-Leste. In keeping with the vision of our founders, we are dedicated to alleviating human suffering by providing relief and rehabilitation services to those in need.

Ryder-Cheshire Ivanhoe Homes

Low cost accommodation for patients and their carers whilst attending appointments and receiving treatment at any Melbourne hospital located over 100kms one way from the patients home

Our Foundation was formed out of a desire to provide a caring, ‘forever home’ for people living with a disability in the community.
As with all Ryder-Cheshire homes our guiding philosophy is the relief of suffering without discrimination.

The Lady Ryder of Warsaw Memorial Trust

The Lady Ryder of Warsaw Memorial Trust is devoted to the relief of suffering. It seeks to render personal service to those in need and to give affection to those who are unloved, regardless of age, race or creed, as part of the Human Family.

Leonard Cheshire

For more than 70 years, we have been supporting disabled people. In the UK and around the world, we work with partners to open doors to opportunity. We also work hard to break down barriers that deny disabled people their basic rights.
