We need your help

The success of Independent Living relies on four key ingredients:

Funding

Our funding target is £23m. So far, we have raised £5m to start the creation of the homes.

Land & properties

Establishing long-term partnerships with land owners or property owners who have vacant or void land/property that could be occupied on a full-time or temporary basis would help us reach our goal faster. We are flexible with our development strategies and are looking at off-site construction, traditional build, commercial re-purposing and refurbishing older properties.

Apprenticeships and jobs

Partners who can provide apprenticeships and jobs to young people in the Independent Living Programme will make a big difference to its overall success.

Pro-bono support and advice

Architectural design, planning law, contract administration would make investments go further and would help ensure we can provide the best possible Independent Living Programme.
