Independent Community Living scheme

Similar to Direct Payment, 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). This service can be accessed through the same channels mentioned above and can be accessed by those already receiving other services depending on the situation and needs.​ ​
