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.



During our #adaptmyhome campaign we’ll be sharing stories about the everyday challenges faced by people living with a disability or long term illness in coping with life at home. These include difficulty getting upstairs and downstairs; using existing bathroom and toilet facilities; not being able to use the kitchen to prepare meals; having problems with access into and out of the home or garden. Our grants towards home adaptations provide practical and positive help in coping with daily life, enabling people to remain at home instead of in hospital or residential care.
