Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) is a National charity providing impartial advice, information and training on independent living.
DLF’s website, Living Made Easy, helps around two million people a year, by providing a comprehensive database of over 11,000 daily living products from 950 national suppliers. Living Made Easy is used predominately by disabled and older people, or their relatives and friends, who are looking for equipment to make everyday tasks easier.
In addition to our equipment and supplier information, we have a wide range of fact sheets to help with everything from choosing a mobility scooter to assisting someone with eating. Written by occupational therapists, they identify easier ways of doing tasks, which equipment might help and when to ask for a professional assessment.
For individuals who are aware of their difficulties but are not sure which equipment may help them, DLF’s online self-help guide, AskSARA, will present a range of options in a personalised report.
Alternatively our helpline offers free, impartial advice about mobility products or other types of daily living equipment, information on where you can buy or hire items or details of local organisations that can help you.
