ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the failure of the Independent Living Fund (ILF) of Great Britain. He states that one can't argue with the fact that ILF has supported many disabled people with higher support needs, since it was formed in 1988. But, he says, the relationship of the organisation with its users and more importantly, local authorities has not been an easy one.
