Independence at Home is a registered charity with a fascinating 57-year history. Click here to read more.

Since our founding in 1965, we have awarded more than £8.5m in grants, helping over 48,000 people of all ages who have a physical or learning disability or long-term illness and who are in financial need.

We aim to improve independence, comfort, safety, dignity and quality of life for people with long-term illness and disability.

If you have a long-term illness or disability – or a member of your family has – and you need financial help towards the cost of specialist equipment or home adaptations, we may be able to help.

We only accept grant applications from health or social care professionals, or advisors or support workers from other organisations or charities.

If you believe you might be eligible for a grant, please ask your physiotherapist, occupational therapist, mental health nurse, GP, or social prescriber, social worker or an advisor from your local Citizens Advice Bureau or another charity or organisation to act as your Referrer. They will need to complete our online application form on your behalf.
