THE COMPANY

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 400 experts who are experienced in caring for people with a huge range of physical and neurological conditions.

Our reputation is built on exceptional care and support. We are exceptionally pleased that for our last CQC inspection, we received the overall rating of outstanding across all nine of our domiciliary services.

Our straightforward approach to complex matters has made us drivers of change in the care industry. Every day each one of the 130 plus service users challenge stereotypes and break down existing perceptions of what it’s like to live with a disability.
