New Independent Living Fund (ILF) Scheme launched!
On 29th June 2017, the Minister for Public Health and Sport, Aileen Campbell, launched the new Independent Living Fund (ILF) scheme, which will be implemented by the Independent Living Fund (ILF) Scotland. The ILF scheme will be a broad, discretionary fund that will provide short term awards to support disabled people to live independently. In its first phase, the new ILF scheme will specifically focus on supporting young disabled, between the ages of 16 and 21, who are at an important transitional stage in their lives, to take up opportunities to contribute to and participate in their communities, which will have a lasting impact on their lives.
The ILF scheme will be open to new applications towards the end of the year.
You can find more details on the new ILF scheme on ILF Scotland’s website.
