MRS Independent Living

We are a user-led independent charity working in north-east London with disadvantaged and socially excluded sections of the community. We identify technical solutions and provide innovative services to support individuals, their families and care workers. The organisation develops services and evaluates its activities against the expressed needs and aspirations of its service users.

Our current services and projects include:

  • Staying Steady - a community-based falls prevention programme
  • Making Room - a therapeutic decluttering programme for people who hoard
  • Peer Support - reducing isolation and strengthening social networks amongst older men
  • Side by Side - advice and practical help for people experiencing complex and multiple problems
  • Digital Confidence - helping older people become more confident using digital technology
  • Minor Adaptations - assisting occupational therapists with provision of rails and other equipment (Islington only)
