Executive Team

Read about our executive team


Our board of trustees and Chief Executive Officer meet on a regular basis to direct the development of the ILF, and to ensure that it is being managed efficiently within the terms of the Independent Living Fund (2006) trust deed.

The trust deed contains a specific power of delegation (clause 9) and there is a formal scheme of delegated authority for the ILF.

The trustees of the ILF meet regularly to discuss issues relating to the organisation. Occasionally the trustees make decisions on personal cases that have been through the normal processes at the ILF and require discussion at a higher level.
