Free support to keep you safe and well at home, or get you back on your feet

As you get older, or your circumstances change, you might need a little extra support to help you to regain the independence you once had. Maybe you can't do everything you’d like to after a recent hospital stay? Or maybe you’re finding it harder to get out and meet friends?

Our Independent Living Co-ordination (ILC) service is a three-month package of support in which we will help you and your family members to achieve your independence needs – whether that be aids and adaptations for your home, increased benefits where eligible, or connecting you up to local activities and transport. Watch the videos below to find out all about the different ways we can help you.

Big Lottery FundOur Benefits at Home service is free, supported by the Big Lottery Fund, and is targeted at people who can’t make it in to our office for a benefits check.

Our Independent Living Co-ordination (ILC) service offers in-depth and holistic advice to older people in Sheffield. In this video, five of those people share their experiences of being helped and the impact that had on their lives.

You can watch the videos below to find out more about the service and hear about Moira's and Brian's stories. Moira accessed our ILC service through Weston Park Hospital and talks about her experience of accessing help and support for bereavement and physical and mental health problems following the loss of her husband. Brian Accessed our service following a referral from a housing provider as the home he lived in was no longer suitable to his needs and he needed support with his correspondence.
