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 Scotland has reopened their fund for people aged 16-25, and living with a disability in Scotland. ILF Scotland can support people to try new activities and experiences that will enhance their independence, confidence and help them to spend more time with other people.
