This Independent Living Fund (ILF) circular outlines the policy to ensure that the ILF does not fund provision that should be met by the Department of Health, and that is provided free of charge at the point of delivery. The ILF’s trust deed sets out the support that can be met with ILF funding and this is not inclusive of health care.
