The independent living team provide a range of services for residents aged 18 to 64 years, and their carers, who need support to meet needs arising from physical disability, illness, autistic spectrum disorder, acquired brain injury, or dementia. The team also works to protect vulnerable adults from risk of harm.
Service priority is given to people who are at most risk, including vulnerable adults. To access the service, we may carry out an assessment. Everyone is entitled to this free service, however you may have to contribute towards the cost of any care and support services offered afterwards.
For information about local charities and community programmes offering support, check out Ealing Charity and Voluntary Sector's (ECVS) Self Help Service Directory. The directory signposts to services and good sources for advice to help residents live more independently and have more control over their life choices. Self-help is recognised as an important part of the recovery and prevention of numerous health conditions. You can also find a wide range of services through CarePlace, an online support services directory and Healthy Ealing, which has videos, information and advice on a number of health conditions.
For residents who are not currently receiving support from the ILT, the place to start is the social services contact centre by telephone on 0208 825 8000 or email: email@example.com
