Independence At Home
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.

You must be in financial need and unable to afford the equipment or building work yourself or to obtain the funding that you require from statutory services.
Our grants are often used together with funds raised from other charities and sometimes from statutory services to complete the purchase.
You have to be referred to us by a professional worker from health, social care or a charity that is in contact with you or your family member. When you have a referrer please ask them to go to the ‘how to apply‘ page of this website.
