The Welsh Independent Living Grant
The UK Government closed the Independent Living Fund (ILF) on 30 June 2015 and we became responsible for supporting those who had been receiving payments.
Disabled people had been receiving payments from the ILF to help them to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes.
We established the Welsh Independent Living Grant with local councils to ensure people receiving payments continued to do so.
This interim arrangement continues until 31 March 2017.
We have been working to put in place long-term arrangements and as a result, this future support will now be provided by local councils.
Payments will continue as usual, but from 1 April 2017 councils will meet with the people receiving them to identify the well-being outcomes they wish to achieve and agree the support they need to do this.
Once this support is available, it will be provided to help people live independently instead of the payments previously received. By 31 March 2019 all recipients will receive their support in this way.
