Feel Us

Group Captain Lord Leonard Cheshire, a highly decorated Royal Air Force pilot of World War II, founded the Bangalore Cheshire Home. On a visit to Bangalore in 1961, he organized a group of volunteers to start a residential home for the suffering and the sick. The home made its humble beginning from a small rented cottage.

Our Aims

The home provides care for physically challenged girls and women from the weaker sections of society. Girls are given medical treatment, education, training and opportunity for personal development while they are with us, preparing them for independent or semi-independent living. Several residents have gone out of the home and are gainfully employed as executives secretaries, telephone operators,  and in various capacities in MNCs, corporates and the government. Others have married and are caring for their families. Only those who need life time care including some elderly women, have stayed with us and have been provided with meaningful occupation in the home, depending on their abilities.

The Home Today

The home has grown over the years, both in size and facilities. The complex situated on Bangalore’s busy HAL Road (opposite the Manipal Hospital) is a home for around  fifty-five people and has residential, recreational, office accommodation, an activity block with study rooms, work spaces and shops. The Whitefield facility is a refuge for about eighteen aged women where they are cared for and live in dignity during their sunset years.
