Annual Report Introduction

Message from the Chief Executive

I am very pleased to introduce the Annual report of the Independent Living Funds for the 2003/4 year.

It has been a year of much change for the ILF, not least among the Trustees. Chairman Sydney Shore, CBE, Vice-Chairman and Treasurer John Shepherd, OBE, and Anne Davies OBE all retired from the board during the year. All three had been Trustees since the current Funds were set up in 1993 and dedicated themselves to the ILF for over 10 years. I would like to thank them for their support and encouragement.

The report details the range of work we have undertaken to improve the service the Funds provide to all its customers and stakeholders. In our business plan for 2003/4 we set ourselves demanding targets for improvement. In the report you will find details of how well we have achieved these and of our plans to further improve what we do.

Also on this website you can find the Financial Reports for the year 2003/4. These demonstrate sound financial management and show how the grants available have been used to support 18000 disabled people to live independently.

I hope that you will find the reports interesting and informative. I welcome your views and comments on the reports. If you would like to comment or have any questions, the details of how to contact the ILF are on page 21 of the Annual Report.
