The Singapore Declaration:- 'A Cheshire Home is a place of shelter physically, and of encouragement spiritually, a place in which the residents can acquire a sense of belonging and of ownership by contributing in any way within their capabilities to its functioning and development, a place to share with others, and from which to gain confidence and develop independence and interests, a place of hopeful endeavour and not of passive disinterest', Leonard Cheshire (1917 - 1992).
