Background information about the Funds

The Independent Living Funds were set up as a national resource dedicated to the financial support of disabled people to enable them to choose to live in the community rather than in residential care.

The Funds are constituted as publicly financed discretionary trusts. For both Funds, awards are in the form of regular four-weekly payments to individuals, which are used to buy personal care. Recipients may use care agencies or employ personal assistants, but may not employ relatives who live in the same house.

In the case of the Extension Fund, the aim has been to continue paying awards to people who were clients of the original ILF, which was closed to new applicants at the end of March 1993. The 93 Fund was set up at that time to accept new applications from people who need more help than their local authority was able to provide.

A combined administration operates for the two Funds, with 119 staff in Nottingham and 74 self-employed Visiting Social Workers who carry out assessments throughout the UK.


93 Fund eligibility criteria

A successful applicant to the 93 Fund must meet the following criteria:

Be at least 16 and under 66 years of age
Receive the highest rate care component of the Disability Living Allowance (or the equivalent Attendance Allowance or Constant Attendance Allowance) and be able to live independently in the community for at least six months
Have savings/capital of less than 18,500, which includes savings/capital of a partner, and an income which is insufficient to cover the costs of care needed
Be assessed by the local authority as being at risk of entering residential care, or capable of leaving it to live in the community
Receive at least 200 worth of services/funding per week from the local authority (net of any charge) and be assessed as needing additional care

The 93 Fund is able to pay up to a maximum of 395 a week, the Extension Fund up to a maximum of 665 a week.
