About us – Our vision, mission & values

Cheshire Homes South Africa is an organisation for persons with physical disabilities, with a vision to alleviate societal barriers and encourage residents to have autonomy over their lives and reach their fullest potential.

These barriers exist in all aspects of life, including access to healthcare, education, employment and economic activities. With approximately 15% of the world’s population being persons with disabilities, we wish to remove any outdated beliefs that portray weakness and dependence, and instead enable equal opportunities and the chance for them to live their lives free from discrimination.

CHSA’s mission is to provide the conditions necessary for the physical, mental and social wellbeing of our residents. Our organisation is imbued with the values of inclusive education from an early age, support for independent living, respect for human rights, and quality of life.
