Independent Living Skills Assessment
An Independent Living Skills Assessment can be carried out on line, over the phone or at the centre. Research following an online or telephone assessment will be sent to the client either via email or by post.
A face to face assessment takes around an hour, gives you the opportunity to discuss your needs in detail with an assessor who will then demonstrate relevant equipment for you. Face to face assessments must be pre booked and are carried out on a Monday or Wednesday.

Unfortunately, the Independent Living Centre is unable to assist with the application process and do not issue Blue Badges, you will need to contact the Isle of Wight Council for all enquires. However, we do have a variety of Blue Badge Holders available for purchase at the Centre.
