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.

Independence at Home has a fascinating 50 year history. Click here to read more.

We're launching our #christmasappeal and we need your help.

People of all ages living at home with disability or long term illness struggle to manage daily activities that most of us would take for granted. For instance, getting up and down stairs, taking a bath or shower, getting a good night’s sleep, popping to the local shops or joining in with family activities and trips.

Individuals we support need financial help towards the cost of mobility and disability equipment, communication aids, home adaptations and essential household items, which sadly, they cannot get from public funds.

This Christmas, your donation will give the gift of Independent Living to those in greatest need of your help.
