Cheshire Homes were established in Nigeria by those who bought into the vision of Captain Leonard

The first home was opened in Ibadan by the late Justice Sir Adetokunbo Ademola in 1959. The establishment of this home named Oluyole Cheshire Home (for the handicapped) Ibadan marked the beginning of Cheshire services in Nigeria. Shortly after, in 1961, another Cheshire Home was established in Lagos, followed by Enugu Home in 1962, then in Orlu in 1968 and Port Harcourt Home in 1973. These five Homes formed Leonard Cheshire Foundation Nigerian (LCFN).
