What support is available to help me keep independent?

If you have a disability and/or experience difficulty completing daily tasks, you have a couple of options:

Community Equipment Service

The service provides a range of equipment to help you live independently. This is funded by your local Council, where Medequip provides the equipment on loan and includes delivery and fitting, servicing, collection and recycling.

You may be eligible for specific equipment following an assessment, where health or social care prescribers such as an Occupational Therapist can work with you to find ways of managing tasks, offer advice and potential solutions.

To access equipment and request an assessment, you can ask your GP for a referral or if you are to be discharged from hospital, an assessment can be arranged. To enquire or request an assessment directly, you can contact your Council's Social Care Team:

Barking and Dagenham Council resident: call 020 8227 2915 or email

Lewisham Council resident: call 020 8314 7777 or email

Returning Equipment

If you have already benefited from equipment loaned to you that you no longer need, you can request a free collection so Medequip can recycle and help others in need. Contact us on 020 8709 7050 or email

Alternatively, you can return equipment directly to our service centre.
