Clare Pelham Chief Executive at Leonard Cheshire Disability


Clare Pelham has been Chief Executive of Leonard Cheshire Disability for over five years. But her connection with the charity began as a student when she lived in the attic of a care home one summer and worked as a volunteer supporting disabled people.

Clare believes passionately in the manifesto of Leonard Cheshire Disability – to work for a society in which every person is equally valued, and for disabled people to have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose.

Before joining Leonard Cheshire Disability, Clare was the inaugural Chief Executive of the Judicial Appointments Commission. She has also held senior civil service positions in the Cabinet Office, the Home Office and the Department of Constitutional Affairs.

Clare has also worked in the private sector at IBM and was a member of the Executive Committee of Coca-Cola GB & Ireland where, as Director of Active Lifestyles, she was responsible for the company’s partnerships with the voluntary sector aimed at increasing participation in physical activity among young people.
