Closurse of Independent Living Fund

Paul Taylforth made this Freedom of Information request to Darlington Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Darlington Borough Council,

Following the new decision by the Government to close the ILF
(Independent Living Fund) on June 30th 2015 and devolve funding to
Local Authorities, please could you answer the following
questions.

1: Will monies transferred from the closure of the ILF to your
local authority be ring fenced to ILF recipients in your area? If
no decision has yet been taken, what is the process and timescale
for this happening?

2: Please could you state the process and timescale for meeting
with current ILF recipients to prepare personal care plans for 1st
July 2015 onwards (bearing in mind the assessments at the Transfer
Review visits only indicate desired outcomes and do not produce an
actual care package).

3: Will you be making any special dispensation for allowing ILF
users to continue to employ their current & in many cases long
standing carers of many years, bearing in mind some may be paid a
higher rate than what LA's may usually advise and be family
members
too?

Many Thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Taylforth
