About the ILF Assessors
Who are they?
The ILF uses the services of 92 self-employed Assessors to visit new applicants to the ILF, and to review the packages of ILF Users every 2 years. The Assessors are professionals from the social care field, usually with social work or occupational therapy qualifications.
The Assessors work from their own homes, and are located throughout the UK. They are supported and monitored by a small Social Work team at the ILF's office in Nottingham.
How are they recruited?
When there is a need for a new Assessor to be appointed, an advertisement may be put in a relevant publication (for instance, Community Care), or advertising may be done through the ILF's Contact Officers in the Local Authorities in the area. A notice will also be posted on the ILF website.
