Occupational Therapy at Your Fingertips

About Us

Established in 2003, Access Independent are one of the UK’s leading occupational therapy companies.

Across all our services, we implement a client-centred approach which puts clinical excellence at the heart of everything we do. This is underpinned by high quality administrative and customer service support from our head office. 

We provide occupational therapy, concessionary travel and social care services to Local Authorities, NHS CCGs, Housing Associations, Charities, private organisations and individuals across the UK.

We also provide diverse training and development to occupational therapists across the world, as well as training for physiotherapists and social workers.

OUR SERVICES

Blue Badge Assessments

We are the UK’s leading experts in eligibility assessments of applicants for Blue Badges, Concessionary Bus Passes, Taxi Cards, Parking Bays and Organisational Badges.

We offer tailor-made solutions to Local Authorities depending on their preferred service delivery model, from fully managed end-to-end services through to the provision of properly trained and experienced Expert Assessors for one off assessments.

If you would rather keep your services in-house, we can train your team in all aspects of delivering a fair and transparent assessment service.

We are a leading provider of occupational therapy services to Local Authorities across the UK, especially for ‘waiting list busting’ services.

We have worked with more than 50 Local Authorities at county and district level, including adult and paediatric social care teams, reablement and housing departments.

As a Local Authority, we will work with you to establish what the best solution is for your demands, and offer a proven, cost-effective solution which puts your residents first.

Occupational Therapist
Social Care

We are a leading provider of multi-disciplinary teams to conduct assessments and reviews of social care packages, including rightsizing of care packages and double-to-single handed care reviews.

Leading the field, we have been featured by the RCOT and OT News for our work to involve occupational therapy more closely in the heart of social care services, helping councils move away from commissioned packages of care, focusing on the strengths of service users and encouraging independence and reablement.

From our head office in central Cambridge, our dedicated team coordinates our services and offers practitioners with administrative and call-centre support, Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm.
