Independent Living Services (ILS) is based at Dorincourt in the countryside just outside Leatherhead, in Surrey.

Our aim is to help residents improve their practical life skills and build their confidence. We actively encourage their personal interests and aspirations, and do all we can to facilitate them – whether it be cooking, birdwatching or an interest in cars.

Residents receive 24-hour care and supervision, a full programme of activities and leisure pursuits and input from therapists, creating an extremely positive environment for people to live in.

Staff help residents to practice their daily living and social skills, develop friendships, and build confidence to make their own decisions and choices. We have weekly resident meetings to discuss any issues people may have and plan future activities.  

Dorincourt is unique in providing three styles of accommodation on one site:

  • Residential rooms, with meals, washing and cleaning provided
  • Self-contained flats where young people can experience living alone, with a safety net of onsite care
  • Group homes with en suite bedrooms, laundry, kitchen and lounge with opportunities for shared cooking activities.  

We accept funding from social services, private funders and NHS continuing health care, and work with funders to find the best solutions.
