If you have a physical disability there is support available to help you live an independent and healthy life.
There are plenty of things you can do to increase your independence. These include getting support to help you remain in your home for as long as you want or are able to.
Our Occupational Therapy service helps physical disabled or frail people of all ages to be as independent and safe as possible at home and out and about.
An occupational therapist or an assessor will visit you in your home to watch any activities you have difficulty with. They may suggest different ways of doing the activities, or may recommend and provide access to products or aids that can help, or adaptations to your home.
For more information visit the equipment and technology section of this website.
Travel and transport
If you find it difficult to get around, there are a number of travel options you can consider to make it easier for you.

There are many sport activities for disabled people in Lambeth to try and also to develop their skills.
The Lambeth REAL Plus card gives you discount at Lambeth Better leisure centres whether you are using the facilities at peak or off-peak times.
The National Key Scheme, or RADAR (Royal Association for Disability Rights) scheme provides disabled key holders with independent access to the toilets provided for them and increases the likelihood of the facilities being in a usable state.
For further information and to apply for a key please visit the Disability Rights UK website.
Wheelchairs and mobility aids
A wheelchair service is available to promote independence in carrying out daily activities. Wheelchairs can be loaned to residents who are registered with a Lambeth GP.
