The Independent Living Fund (ILF) has published a series of articles presenting the learning of the organisation over the past 27 years.

Over these years the ILF has provided support to over 46,000 disabled people with high support needs to assist with meeting the cost of the support they require to achieve independent living, and has developed a significant body of expertise and learning regarding independent living support.

The articles capture 27 distinct learning points about how the organisation operated and what worked well.

“Twenty-seven” presents this learning through a series of articles, each penned by a different author, and captures 27 distinct learning points about how the organisation operated and what worked well.

James Sanderson, CEO of the ILF said “Before we close on 30 June 2015, our Trustees and Executive team wanted to ensure that we captured our intellectual capital in order that our learning could be used by others operating in the field of independent living support for disabled people.”

“Thank you to all those who contributed to the publication especially ILF staff, assessors and partners of the ILF over the past 27 years.”
