Welcome to Independence Homes.

Our Residential and Supported Living services across London and the South East focus on person-centered, community-based support. We support every person to achieve the independence they need to thrive.

At Independence Homes, we do things differently. Our organisation was built on the belief that independent minds deserve independent lives – no matter what stands in the way. After 20 years, we have grown to become a team of over 300 experts who are experienced in caring for people with a huge range of physical and neurological conditions.
Our reputation is built on exceptional care. Our straightforward approach to complex matters has made us drivers of change in the care industry. Every day each one of the 120 service users aged 17+ challenge stereotypes and break down existing perceptions of what it’s like to live with a disability.
Since we began in 1997, we have grown to become the best at what we do through investing in our people. By nurturing and rewarding their hard work and dedication, we keep providing consistent, high-quality care to those who need it most.
We have 15 services offering access to round-the-clock care in a safe and responsive environment.
By the time 22-year-old Marie moved to Independence Homes she had been at a short-stay respite centre for 16 months. Her uncontrollable Epilepsy meant she was unable to return to her family home because she needed access to constant care. She also needed the freedom to enjoy her life again.
Marie’s parents and Care Manager visited Independence Homes back in 2010. At first, they had their doubts because our services are so different to everything they had experienced before. We explained that she would have access to 24-hour support from expert staff, who were fully trained in administering her medication. At the core of everything we do we strive to ensure everyone enjoys as much independence as possible. So, with our help, Marie could look forward to living a fulfilled life.
Since joining Independence Homes Marie has thrived. Her hospital visits have reduced and, most importantly, her condition has changed from taking over her life to being a manageable part of it. She now enjoys an active life with the many friends she has made. She recently enrolled in college – opening up a world of exciting new opportunities.
