Guidance on Independent Living Fund payments for extra costs incurred for care provided on a bank or public holiday.
Independent Living Fund (ILF) payments are normally made 4 weeks in arrears and paid directly to the user or their representative. Payments reflect the usual weekly cost of care and do not contain contingency costs, other than those associated with employers responsibilities. Where additional costs are incurred the ILF may consider these on a case by case basis. This circular on bank holiday costs clarifies that the ILF will make payments on request.
