Independent Living Funds Announce Funding Threshold Changes
The Independent Living Funds (ILF) has written to all of its users, applicants and their representatives living in Great Britain (GB) as well as Local Authorities and Disability Organisations, to inform them of changes to its rules from 1 April 2008.
The changes relate to the threshold sum that Local Authorities must pay, which has been increased to £320 per week, and the date that ILF can pay increased awards from.
Additionally, measures are being taken to manage valid applications received by the ILF from 1 April 2008. These measures will give priority to those applicants who are in work and on the lowest incomes.
The changes mean that ILF can continue to provide support to existing users and also continue to allow new users to apply to the ILF.
To coincide with this announcement, a Press Release has been issued by the ILF. Click here to see the Press Release.
