It features buying guides for a range of aids to daily living, mobility, and independence. The website also caters for professionals, with buying guides for equipment such as care home furniture, hoists, and pressure management systems.

The Independent Living News Centre features case studies, new product focus, industry news, podcasts, guest blogs, and newsletter archives.

The Independent Living Advice Centre is full of information and resources. Topics include living with a disability, caring for someone who cannot live independently, and bringing up a disabled child. It also has information on benefits, legislation, keeping warm and well, fall prevention, and generally coping with being a carer.
