Independent Living in Scotland

Independent living means all disabled people having the same freedom, choice, dignity and control as other citizens at home, at work and in the community. It does not necessarily mean living by yourself or fending for yourself.  It means rights to practical assistance and support to participate in society and live an ordinary life.

The Independent Living in Scotland project (ILiS) is hosted by Inclusion Scotland and works closely with the Disabled People's Independent Living Movement (ILM).
