Make a donation

Please donate today and help us to help others live their lives independently. Every donation, big or small, helps disabled people and those with health care needs to live the life they deserve.
Every year, Independent Lives supports thousands of disabled people to live independent lives. Our support allows people with long term health and social care needs to live their lives with dignity and respect.
