Independence at Home

Description:

Independence at Home is a charity providing financial help, in the form of one-off grants of money, to people living at home in the UK, who are substantially disabled or long-term ill, and in financial need. They are not able to help people living in residential care, and cannot help other organisations or groups of people.

Grants are made towards a wide range of items that are needed to improve independence, safety, comfort and quality of life. Before a grant can be considered, the Charity expects that Statutory provision, where appropriate, be first investigated.

Independence at Home has an on line application process.  Go to the How to Apply page of their website:  www.independenceathome.org.uk  where you will find details of their information requirements.  Your referrer can access the Referrer Form on this page.  When this form is submitted the Referrer receives an email with a link to a second form for the Applicant Details.  The two completed forms make up the Grant Application.

If you would like to speak to a member of staff about an application please call on 020 8427 7929 Monday to Thursday 9am to 5pm or email to iah@independenceathome.org.uk.

Independence at Home is not able to make regular grants, although they can sometimes help more than once. They are not, however, able to do this until at least one year has elapsed since a grant was made.

Please note that Independence at Home cannot help towards the following:

  • debt relief and arrears
  • funeral expenses
  • medical treatment
  • telephone bills other than connection charges
  • leisure equipment and televisions
  • car expenses (although vehicle adaptations can be considered)
  • fees for services of any kind

Please note they can be contacted by telephone, post or email service only – they are not open to visitors.
