Details

This circular describes how the Independent Living Fund (ILF) will continue to support users who are abroad by continuing to fund their support during these periods. It reflects the remit of the ILF to support users to live independently within their communities and, in doing so, to have choice and control over their lives. In particular it states that users are able to employ providers not registered or resident in the UK when they are abroad.

This policy is subject to users continuing to meet the ILF eligibility requirements.
