Introduction to Independent Living

Living with a disability can seem challenging and not all care homes can provide the desired results. Being able to live in the comfort of your own home can do wonders for those with disabilities and allows them the peace of mind of knowing they are still in control over their own lives.

But what are the costs and how do people ensure they get the care they need?

This is where independent living and the various organisations surrounding the movement can help.

People who learn about independent living often benefit by learning about the various entitlements and allowances available to them, how they can personalise their care - and more. Independent living allows the disabled to live comfortably in their home and partake in their communities with ease.

What does study method mean?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
