Enrych is a charity founded by Leonard Cheshire and Sue Ryder in 1986 (known then as Ryder Cheshire Volunteers). After 36 years, the purpose of the charity remains unchanged - to support disabled people to enjoy active and independent lives. Enrych helps people identify what would make a positive difference in their lives (especially through leisure and learning opportunities), and then to find ways to help make this happen. This might be a volunteer partnership, an activity group, Enrych social events, or through one-to-one support. 

We support people to tailor their own service and have the opportunity to; increase self-confidence, develop independence, meet people with the same interests, reduce social isolation, improve fitness and/or emotional health and well-being, have fun, connect, engage and enjoy life in the community.


We work with individuals to achieve the outcomes they determine as necessary in order to lead the lives they want. Our work isn’t about ‘helping’ people who are less fortunate or about creating ongoing dependence; it’s about unlocking potential – enabling individuals to realise their dreams, beyond disability, to live the lives they want.... without us. Enrych is the steppingstone to a richer, more rewarding life.
