Independence Homes is the leading provider of specialist care and support for people with epilepsy. The people we support may also have other needs, such as learning and/or physical disabilities.

Today, we employ around 300 staff, and support around 100 service users aged 16 and over in either our residential care or in our supported living services.

Thanks to all the parents and service users for their contributions towards this new website.
