The Independent Community Living scheme (ICL), is a financial package offered to persons with disability to live more independently or provide more assistance in more intense situations.
The package can cover services provided by a live-in carer or an amount of hours which exceed the maximum offered through the Agency’s own human resources or Direct Payment (13 hours per week).
General eligibility criteria:
- At the intake stage the situation is reviewed by Social Workers from the Sapport Assessment and Intervention team, who conduct the initial contact with the person with disability and assess their needs and refer the service user to the respective board to be allocated a subsidy for personal assistance
Referrals for the Independent Community Living Scheme should first be directed to the Sapport Assessment and Intervention Team by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
