As an ILF Scotland recipient, living in Northern Ireland, you will receive a review visit from one of our Assessors every two years or if you contact us to inform us of a change in your circumstances.

COVID-19 Visit Process

We normally visit our recipients once every two years, but we have been unable to do this because of COVID-19 restrictions. We have now started to reschedule visits as restrictions have been lifted. You can find more information here. 


Prior to the Visit

The Specialist Caseworker for Northern Ireland, Gill Love, will send you a letter to advise you of your visit and that an ILF Scotland Assessor, based in Northern Ireland, will contact you directly to organise a date and time for your visit. She will also send you some forms that you will need to fill in with the Assessor when they come to do the visit.


When the Assessor contacts you to organise the date and time of your visit, they will discuss what will happen at the visit with you and what record keeping paperwork you will need to have ready for them. The Assessor and the Specialist Caseworker will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the visit at this point so please don’t hesitate to ask them any queries you may have.


During the Visit

When the ILF Scotland Assessor comes to visit you to do your review they will evaluate your needs and check how the funds have been used. Again, the Assessor will be more than happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have.


After the Visit

When an ILF Scotland Assessor has completed your visit, they will submit your paperwork to the Specialist Caseworker who will then use this information to generate an offer and then subsequently process a final award for you.
