Detail

Relatives living in the same household as an Independent Living Fund (ILF) user can only be paid with ILF funding under ‘exceptional’ circumstances.

This circular provides guidance for staff, independent assessors, decision makers and ILF users to determine if a case qualifies as exceptional. It also explains how requests should be handled.
