Currently we are not making any grants towards the cost of white goods and other household items, house repairs (with the exception of the over 60’s in England), garden work or sensory equipment. This is because our donations are not as high as our targets and we are having to prioritise our grant making to improve independent living. More news here


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.

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