Hello and welcome, we're here to help

Dundee & Angus Independent Living Centre is a place to try things out, free of charge. You can just turn up during opening hours. Or, better still, make an appointment and we can show you round.

On this website you can see videos of people using the kit in the Centre. But it's not just about walking aids, stairlifts, level showers and easy to use kitchen tools. There is information about keeping well, staying safe, enjoying life, communicating and learning. Explore our Links section to find out more. You need to be assessed before borrowing equipment. The Centre covers both Dundee and Angus, and is open 9 am to 5 pm weekdays.

Your feedback is very valuable to us to improve our service and to also continue providing an efficient service to everyone.  To help us do this we would appreciate 15-30 minutes of your time to help us do this by completing a survey.  The survey will be closing soon - feedback from the survey will appear shortly afterwards.
