Independent living


Adapt your home

If you're struggling to get around your home due to a disability, long-term illness, visual impairment or old age, we may be able to help with equipment and adaptations to your home to make it easier and safer to live independently or for a carer to look after you.


Independent living

Independent living gives you choices about and control over your life, support you get, where and how you live, including supported living.


Housing options explained

If you do need to move because of a change in your personal circumstances then there are many choices you can make.


Free bus passes

You can apply for a bus pass for free travel when you reach the female State Pension age (whether you're a man or a woman), or if you have certain disabilities.


Homelessness

You are homeless if you have nowhere to stay and are living on the streets, but you can be homeless even if you have a roof over your head.
