The Independent Living Fund (ILF), the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) and the Local Government Association (LGA) are pleased to reaffirm their commitment to working in partnership under the principles of the joint code of practice to best support the effective transfer of ILF users to sole local authority support from 1 July 2015.

The ILF relaunched its review programme on 7 March 2014 following the government announcement to close the ILF on 30 June 2015. The code of practice aims to enhance the effective delivery of the closure programme by setting out 10 key principles, which support partnership working between the ILF and local authorities in England.

Chief Executive of the ILF, James Sanderson, and joint chair of the ADASS physical disabilities network, John Nawrockyi, commented on their commitment to support effective arrangements for ILF users through the transition of their care and support to their local authority.

James Sanderson said:

"This code of practice helps maintain our commitment to the principles of personalisation and outcome focused independent living support. Our users will have had a face to face visit from an ILF independent assessor and will be provided with an outcome-focused support plan to assist them in discussing their support arrangements with their local authority from July 2015."

John Nawrockyi added:

"Councils are in a strong position to take up this work with their extensive experience of direct payments and personal budgets"
