Andrew and Patricia’s Story
The Independent Living Fund (ILF) is a national pot of money that can be used in the same way as Direct Payments to employ Personal Assistants. ILF is currently closed to new applicants and the funding will be devolved in June 2015 to create a new Scottish Independent Living Fund – we will post regular updates about the ILF in the ‘News’ section of our website.
