Following the closure of the UK Independent Living Fund (ILF) on 30th June 2015, the Scottish Government established a new organisation, Independent Living Fund Scotland (ILF Scotland), to administer ILF for existing recipients of the fund in Scotland. ILF Scotland is a public body, governed by a Board of Directors, appointed by and accountable to Scottish Ministers.

ILF Scotland operates as a discretionary fund providing financial awards to over 3,000 disabled people in Scotland and Northern Ireland to help them live independently.

Our funding enables individuals to pay for care so that they can be supported in their homes and within their local communities.
