Poorly paid no increments for weekends or bank holidays
I have worked for Leonard Cheshire for many years, overall I would say it is a good company to work for, the big downfall is salary wages in London barely over the minimum wage and no extras for working nights or weekends.
Staff are constantly told Saturdays and Sundays are part of the normal working week but they will try to make you work more weekends and have days off through the week.

Management would think nothing if it suited them to change your shifts or your hours without any notice, day shifts have been cut In our service from 8 hours to 6.5 hours now leaving staff down on contracted hours and a few years ago staff had money shaved of the hourly rate which put some staff into financial difficulties.

higher management seem only to be bothered about the budget and there is no money in the pot for leisure activities meaning the poor residents have no social life.

Although being stuck in most days the residents are cared for and well looked after and quite often staff will use their own money or time to try and do activities with the residents

Leonard Cheshire is run more like a money making organisation then a charity and the bosses at the top on huge salaries while poor support workers are barely earning a crust for all their hard work, it is definitely the wrong way round.

Very low moral
Staff not valued by management
All enhancements have been taken away hourly rate increased

So this looks like a good rate of pay.

Night shift pay is very low.
Cons
Long hours
