Our consultation on how we can best support the needs of the 21,000 users of the Independent Living Fund (ILF) beyond the end of this parliament will take place following the report of the Independent Commission on the Funding of Care and Support.

We have committed to consulting with disabled people, the current users of the ILF, local authorities, the devolved administrations and other interested parties.

The Government are committed to delivering genuine choice and control for disabled people through further personalisation and localisation of care and support; we will consult how the needs of the 21,000 can be best met in line with those objectives.
