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.
Independence Homes was founded in 1997 to support people with epilepsy to fulfill their potential and achieve their objectives.
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.
Happy people, working together providing a service that everybody loves.
To provide the highest quality epilepsy care and support.
To provide enjoyable and worthwhile jobs for all of our team.
Our shared values that guide us are:
