Consultation Meeting Dates Announced

Part of the Review of the ILF process is consultation with people who make personal use of the ILF.  To help them gather opinions and experiences of ILF users the consultants have organised five major consultation meetings to be held over the summer. 

These meetings are an important part of the consultation and are an opportunity for you to share your experiences of using the ILF.  The ILF will not be present at this meetings.  They have been organised by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Meetings will run from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and refreshments (tea and coffee) will be provided.  All of the venues are accessible and the DWP are able to help with your transport costs if this would help you to attend.  Places are limited, however, and it is important that you register an interest as soon as possible (and by the stated deadline) in order to secure a place at one of the meetings. 

The venues are as follows:

1. Tuesday 8th August: Newport Centre, Kingsway, Newport NP9 1UH.  Deadline for applications: 28th July.

2. Thursday 17th August: Richmond House, 79 Whitehall, London SW1A 2NS.  Deadline: 3rd August.
