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.

Our charity exists to improve INDEPENDENCE at home for people of all ages living with disability and long term illness.

Those we help struggle to manage everyday activities, for instance getting up and down stairs, having a bath or shower, visiting local shops, taking a fuller part in student life or joining family and friends on activities and trips.

Over the next few months we’ll be sharing beneficiaries’ stories with you, showing how our grants help to transform daily living, enabling people to live life the way they want to.
