Question from Community Care: Independent Living Fund is past its prime, write Bob Hudson and Melanie Henwood

    Independent Living Fund is past its prime, write Bob Hudson and Melanie Henwood

    * Social care minister Ivan Lewis has described the provision of cash rather than direct care as “the foundation of a modern social care system”. What do you think might be seen as the problems with a traditional approach based upon direct care? (GUIDE TIME FOR DISCUSSION: 30 minutes)

    * In what ways has the Independent Living Fund played a part in the development of ‘cash for care’ ideas and programmes? (20 minutes)

    * Where does the ILF fit into the new policy landscape of direct payments, In Control and individual budgets? How do you think these various initiatives can best be brought together into a coherent programme? (30 minutes)
