Lankelly Chase is a charitable foundation whose mission is to bring about lasting change in the lives of people currently facing most disadvantages in our society. Our focus is on people least
well-served by existing responses to social disadvantage and therefore at greatest risk of neglect and/or coercive or punitive interventions. These are people who face a number of
interconnecting disadvantages, most obviously mental illness, homelessness, violence and abuse, drug misuse and extreme poverty.
We promote approaches that value the equal worth of human beings, that allow each person to find their own path, and that address the underlying causes of the harms they face. We want
such approaches to become the norm, and believe this requires radical change at every level in the way we think about and respond to social disadvantage.
