Independent Lives has been working with disabled adults and children since 2001, providing support so they can continue to live in their own home. 

In the last year (Jan-Dec 2017) we have:

  • Helped 269 disabled people in West Sussex and Hampshire to employer their own carers 
  • Advised 1,768 people so they manage their own care and support budget
  • Offered supported volunteering opportunities to disabled people so they can gain work experience and gain confidence
  • Provided 32,066 hours of care, supporting 184 customers in their own home.

By choosing Independent Lives as your Charity of the Year you will help us to continue to provide this much needed care and support.

What our customers say

“Independent Lives makes a big difference to people, may you long continue.”

“I would really like to thank you very much for all your support you have given to me with my father’s account. I could not fault the service of you or your team. Any problems were rectified promptly, and I found it very easy to contact you by telephone or email, with a friendly, professional and swift response at all times.”

“The small crew gives a personal touch. I know people’s names. If they can’t sort it, they find someone who can, they never leave me hanging.”

“Independent Lives support me in employing help for my disabled sister and are a truly excellent organisation. So efficient and helpful.”

“Thank you, I really appreciate it. In case you’d like to pass on to anyone within the organisation, I do feel the payroll service is excellent and is a really valued support, any queries are always dealt with quickly and helpfully and the routine payroll administration is super efficient - your team certainly deserves recognition!”

“I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you very much for the helpful and practical advice your colleague just gave me over the telephone.”

“Thank you for this month’s figures. I should like to thank you for all the help in the past you so kindly have given me, when I had unanswered questions that I bombarded you with at the beginning! I must say I shall not hesitate in referring Independent Lives services to my friends should they ever be needed in the future.”

“The person who came to my husband this morning is an excellent carer and is welcome back at any time.”
