ENRYCH (formerly Ryder-Cheshire Volunteers) is a national charity with established Branches across various counties of the UK. It was based on the vision of the late Leonard Cheshire, who was keen to ensure the availability of leisure and learning opportunities for adults with a physical disability.
ENRYCH helps to identify a person’s leisure or learning preference and, together, establishes personalised outcomes. From this process, ENRYCH facilitates how best to meet this need, be it through the sourcing of like-minded volunteers, supported introductions, group activities or the opportunity to become part of the ENRYCH community through organised social events, regular newsletters etc. The types of activities are virtually limitless and can include swimming, computer studies, painting, reading, angling, golf, riding, gym, bowls, gardening, arts and crafts, creative writing, playing musical instruments and watching football.
