SNAPSHOT: Tea for two

Chancellor Gordon Brown joined Mary Douglas, who attends the Leonard Cheshire Day Service in Rosyth, Fife, for tea and cakes at the launch of a new centre last week. There are currently eight young adults with physical and learning disabilities who attend the facility where they benefit from individually tailored support. This combines a range of educational, social and therapeutic activities such as going swimming at their local pool and attending pub quizzes or football games.

Research by Leonard Cheshire has shown that being excluded from society is a huge issue for disabled people in the UK. The Rosyth centre has relied on local people, companies and trusts for funding.
