Independent Lives is a user-led charity and social enterprise working to change the lives of disabled people, people with support needs and carers.
Our vision is for a fair society where we can all participate and fulfil our potential.
Working together we can achieve real change in the lives of the people we support - so that we can all participate in our communities and have greater choice, control, and freedom.
We provide a range of frontline services which support people and their communities. From domiciliary care support to respite support for carers, from information and advice for direct payment recipients to campaigns that promote the importance of peer leadership and strategic co-production. Independent Lives is a charity which really matters and really makes a difference.
We provide a range of services to support people who receive Direct Payments. Our trained advisors can give you the information and advice you need to employ your own personal assistants.
