The new Independent Living Fund (ILF) Scotland Transition Fund provides money, for up to one year, to support young people living with disabilities (as defined in the EqualityAct 2010) to improve their lives. This includes autism, learning difficulty, physical disability, mental health (e.g. anxiety or depression) or hearing or visual impairments. The purpose of the Fund is to help young people, between the ages of 16 and 21 living with disabilities, with the transition after leaving school or children’s services to be more independent and tocontinue spending time with other people.
