We would love to hear from you if you need help from us, would like to make a grant application, a donation or discuss any issues raised on this website.

Independence at Home was founded in October 1965. Since then, we have worked steadily to help improve independence, comfort, safety, dignity and quality of life for people with long-term illness and disability.

Independence at Home is a charity that provides grants to people of all ages who have a physical or learning disability or long term illness and who are in financial need.

We may be able to help you if you, or a member of your family, have a long term illness or disability and need financial help towards the cost to improve your independence, comfort, safety and quality of life at home.

We’ve launched our #homecomforts campaign and we will be sharing cases that highlight the unique challenges faced by those living at home with disability and long term illness.

Sadly, many people we support experience discomfort and pain when carrying out everyday activities that most of us would take for granted. For instance, getting out of bed, moving from seating to standing, taking a bath or shower or moving safely around the home. The good news is that with a little carefully targeted help from us, daily living can be transformed for the better.

Grants we make to those in need are used towards the cost of specialised mobility and disability equipment and home adaptations not available from public funds. This helps improve comfort, safety, dignity, quality of life and independence at home.
