Newham changemaker

Enabled Living Healthcare provide a range of services that help Newham residents live the life they choose. They offer community equipment, sensory support and wheelchair and specialist seating services to support people to continue to live independently in their own homes. They are proud to be a Newham Council owned company and have been an accredited London Living Wage employer since 2018.


“It is extremely important to us that our staff get paid a fair wage, which is why we are committed to being a London Living Wage employer. By paying the London Living Wage we make sure our own employees are not subjected to unnecessary pressures from low pay, which can affect their wellbeing and inadvertently cause damage to

their health and the health of their families.”

– Matthew Sheehan, Managing Director, Enabled Living Healthcare
