My independence

To maintain independence, some people with disabilities will need their home, work and community made more accessible. Accessibility means removing barriers so you can move around and get to the places where you want to go – and carry out your daily activities, whether that’s work, study or leisure.

In this section you can find out more about making your home accessible. You can also learn about how you can get modifications to your workplace to make it easier for you to do your job.

There is also information about ways you can access your community, including information about getting around on public transport; how to access disability parking; and where to find assistance to cover the cost of transport or vehicle modification.
