More About The Organisation
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.
This financial help enables them to obtain mobility and disability equipment, home adaptations and other essential items to make an immediate, practical and positive effect on daily life at home.
The charity was founded in October 1965. Since then the grants have improved independence and freedom for over 40,000 people from all parts of the UK. A grant could be towards
•A powered wheelchair, improving mobility in and around the home and in the local community
•A riser-recliner chair, to be able to sit comfortably and go from sitting to standing more easily
•A wet room, to be able to have a shower independently and safely
Independence at Home’s grants vary between £200 and £600 and depend on the item of equipment purchased or building work carried out. The average grant is £300. You can download a copy of our impact report with case histories of some of the people that we have supported from our website
