Consultation on the Future of the Independent Living Fund (ILF) launched

The Department for Work Pensions, have launched a consultation seeking views on the impact that closing the Independent Living Fund (ILF) in 2015 would have on users, local authorities and the wider care and support systems across the UK. The Government would also like your views on how closure could be managed in a way which would minimise disruption to the care and support needs of existing ILF users.

The Department is keen to hear from ILF users, their carers, families, local authorities and other interested parties in the wider care and support system.
