What We Do

At Foundations Independent Living Trust, we recognise that for older, vulnerable and financially constrained people, the desire to stay at home can often be at odds with the practicalities of staying at home. Actioning manageable repairs, small-scale improvements and assistive modifications can feel like a mountain to climb. What should in principle be easy is transformed into an insurmountable challenge –threatening their sense of safety, security and well-being in the one place that should afford them these very things –their home.

Our mission is to help people to continue to love their home, to thrive in their home. To not feel that everyday is a battle to live independent, purposeful lives in their home. To make sure no one falls through the gap –however large or small their need.

With our family of partners, we provide the funding, advice and support to ensure everyday people in need can make the practical changes and repairs to their homes that they need, and deserve. From a new boiler to a front door grab-rail; from new windows to simple draught excluders. Because small changes can have meaningful, life-changing impacts. Because small is powerful. It’s what we do, everyday.

Our Unique Selling Proposition

We distribute Corporate Social Responsibility, government grant and charitable funds through our network of local home improvement agencies (HIAs) to provide a range of support including repairs and improvements to people’s homes.
