#SaveILF: join the mass action to stop the closure of the vital Independent Living Fund

Disabled People Against Cuts is calling for a mass action at the House of Commons at the start of next year to save the Independent Living Fund.

The ILF is a fund that disabled people with the highest support needs use to fund the extra carer hours they need to live independent lives. This government wants to close the ILF and to sentence profoundly disabled people to lives shut away in carehomes.

In this film, which we made recently with the Daily Mirror, ILF recipients talk about the role the ILF plays in their lives and how intolerable life will be without it:


We're NOT all in this together: the story of the closure of the Independent Living Fund from Moore Lavan Films on Vimeo.


Says Disabled People Against Cuts:

"We must stop disabled people being pushed back into the margins of society. We will not go back into the institutions. Our place is in the community alongside our family and friends and neighbours and we are fighting to stay.

Join DPAC for a DPAC-style lobby of parliament on January 6 2015. Make sure politicians know that disabled people are still here and are neither going away nor allowing themselves to become prisoners in institutions or their own homes.

The mass action and lobby will be held on:

Tuesday,January 6 1.30pm for 2pm start
House of Commons, SWIA 0AA
