Dear Hackney Borough Council,

1. How many former Independent Living Fund (ILF) recipients reside in your London Borough?

2. How many former ILF recipients who have had community care assessments have had reductions in levels of their care package funding and/or support compared to the total they received from both the ILF and the Local Authority combined before closure?

Of these how many have had reductions:

• Of under 10%?
• Of between 10 and 20%?
• Of between 21 and 40%?
• Of between 41 and 50%?
• Of over 50%?

3. The government committed to four years’ worth of funding through the former ILF Recipient Grant from 2016/17 until 2019/20. Has your London borough:

• Ring-fenced this to care and support for former ILF recipients?
• Ring-fenced to adult social care?
• Not ring-fenced?

4. How many former ILF recipients have as part of their re-assessment been referred for a Continuing Healthcare Assessment, and of these how many were found eligible?

5. How many complaints have been received from former ILF recipients concerning their re-assessments and the outcomes thereof?

6. How many former ILF recipients have been moved into residential care following the closure of the ILF?
