Physical Disability Independent living support for people with physical disabilities There are over 10 million people in the UK who are living with some form of physical disability. Whether you are born with a disability or it’s acquired later in life and whether it is permanent or temporary, it’s important to have some independence. Independent living is more possible now than it ever was before with Direct Payments and Individual Budgets that providing more choice and control and the ability to choose your own help at home.
