Independent living means all disabled people having the same freedom, choice, dignity and control as other citizens at home, work and in the community. It does not necessarily mean living by yourself or fending for yourself. It means rights to practical assistance and support to participate in society and live an ordinary life.
It is about ensuring people of all ages are able to maintain their independence, and are able to access appropriate support when they need it.
What do we do?
The Independent Living Service (ILS) aims to Enable Disabled People to make the most of the same rights and options as anyone else – creating a sense of
Independence, Choice & Opportunities
We are here to create an accessible environment, give control over personal assistance, offer peer support, put people at the heart of decisions that affect them and build people’s self-confidence and motivation through positive actions.
