Between April 2020 and March 2021 we have supported 1,500 people with transformational grants. We have spent £555,000 on these grants and raised £485,000 in donations.

Our thanks to our wonderful donors who have helped us to increase our grant making by 25% during this year of Covid-19.

People living at home with disability and long term illness are finding life much more challenging during the pandemic.

When all else fails we do what we can to improve their independence and reduce isolation.


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 55 year history. Click here to read more.
