We are delighted that the Transition Fund is now open. On this page you will find all of the details about how you can apply. As there is no deadline or closing date for the fund we do not want you to feel any pressure to complete and submit your application quickly. You can find more information about the fund here.


What you will need for your application


To complete your application you will need:

  • your national insurance number,
  • your local authority area,
  • your Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP) benefits letter if you receive this, or
  • the name, job title and contact details of someone who can confirm your disability. You can find a list of examples in the ‘Who Can Apply’ section.


Before you start your application you should also think about these things:

  • What is your goal?
  • How will your goal benefit you?
  • What do you need to buy to reach your goal?
  • Who will support you to reach your goal?



We have now opened our new online application service for the ILF Scotland Transition Fund.

As this is the first time we are opening the service for online applications to the fund we want to make sure that we get it right so the system will initially allow 250 online applications spread across all areas of Scotland.

Once the system has processed these online applications and we have made any changes to the system following the feedback we receive, we will aim to make the service available again in 2019.

If you would like to register to use this application process then please send us your email address to enquiries@ILF.scot with the subject heading ‘Online application request’. When you have done this, we will send you an email to confirm that we have authorised your email address and we will send you a link to the online application service so that you can then start your online application.



You can apply by downloading the application form at the bottom of this page, filling it in and emailing it to us at enquiries@ILF.scot
