Dear Croydon Borough Council,

I would be grateful for the following information:

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?

I look forward to your response. Many thanks for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Ellen Clifford

Dear Croydon Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Croydon Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Situation following the closure of the Independent Living Fund'.

The response I received on 8 May 2018 states that information relating to changes in the social care packages about former ILF recipients is not held. The majority of other London boroughs hold the equivalent information for former ILF recipients in their borough. Moreover, Croydon Council was awarded £4,031,087 by central government for the support of former ILF recipients through the "Former ILF Recipients Grant". We would therefore expect this information to be held.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

Yours faithfully,

Ellen Clifford
