Funders and Helpful Agencies

Doing Better With Support From Other People

Independent Living Support is funded and/or supported by some fantastic local and national companies including the Dumfries and Galloway Council, The Holywood Trust, The Gannochy Trust, Robertson Trust, The Corra Foundation.  If you would like to get involved with any of our exciting projects across the region of Dumfries and Galloway, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We could not deliver the service that we do without the help of our funders, and we recognise that by coming together we can deliver the best results possible for our service users.

If you need help with other issues, please check one of our partner agencies to see if they can give you the extra help that you need. There is nothing wrong with feeling vulnerable sometimes, but take control by taking that next step into getting some help.
