Independent Living is a not-for-profit organisation, committed to making daily living easier. We’re your friendly community experts on all things related to disability and maintaining independence.

From generic information through to walking stick testing, products for sale and hire, we can also help you navigate the health and disability sector and access funding options. We offer brochures and information in a wide variety of languages, and we sell a huge tried-and-tested range of daily living aids.

Most importantly, we care about what people can do. We focus on abilities, we find solutions, and we work to understand the unique situation of everyone who comes to us. Many of us have experienced disability ourselves, so what we do has deep personal meaning to us.

Funded Mobility Equipment Repairs in Auckland - If you (or a loved one) are living in Auckland and cannot afford to have your mobility equipment repaired, Independent Living may be able to help.

We have a targeted fund for equipment repairs for disabled or elderly people on a low income. We can fix walkers, scooters, wheelchairs and more.

If you think you might qualify for this funding (we'll just ask you a couple of simple questions about your income) please email us at repairs@ilsnz.org or check out more info on our Funded Repairs webpage at www.ilsnz.org/pages/funded-repairs. Or pop into one of our stores at Botany (308 Te Irirangi Dr), Royal Oak (14 Erson Ave) and Browns Bay (13 Bute Rd) for more information.

We look forward to getting you mobile :) Have a lovely day.

The Team at Independent Living
