Although the Sarawak Cheshire Home was officially declared opened in November 1969, its formation went back to 1966. A group of people who had heard of the work of the Cheshire Homes, founded by Group Captain Leonard Cheshire began to make plans to establish a home in Kuching to serve the incurably sick and handicapped for whom there was no special places.

By May of that year – 1966, Group Captain Cheshire himself visited Kuching to see into the possibility of establishing a Home in Kuching. The Sarawak Social Welfare Council gave momentum to the fund raising drive with a generous grant. This grant had been continued annually by the Ministry of Welfare. The hard work and many contributions of interested individuals from all over the State have since made the construction and running of Sarawak Cheshire Home possible.
