Independence at Home (IAH) is committed to supporting people of all ages living at home with disability and long term illness in the UK.

With the impact of the Coronavirus becoming clearer in the UK, the IAH staff team is following the Government’s guidance to work from home from Monday 23rd March. We will be working hard to continue helping the most vulnerable people in our communities and enable them to remain independent at home at this unprecedented time. Our contact details remain the same and any changes will be shared via our web site.

In the last 12 months we have raised £400,000 to enable us to support 1200 people with transformational grants. However we know that people living at home with disability and long term illness are becoming even more vulnerable in our communities due to isolation and increased demands on health and social care services as a result of the virus. If you would like to support our work please go to the Donate page of our web site. More news here.


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.
