ILF Scotland

What is it?

The Independent Living Fund Scotland administers funding for disabled people in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This funding is additional to what statutory authorities (local authorities, health and social care partnerships (HSCPs), Health and Social Care Trusts (HSCTs) etc) provide and ensures that disabled people can purchase additional social care support to enable them to live independently in their communities.

In April 2024, the Independent Living Fund re-opened to new applicants in Scotland.

How much funding can I get?

The maximum award that ILF Scotland is able to pay is dependent on when a person originally started receiving ILF Scotland funding. You can find out more about this by reading Policy 20 - ILF Scotland Payments.

Any funding awarded by ILF Scotland will be additional and complementary to the statutory funding provided by a person’s Local Authority.
