The Independent Living Group (ILG) was created to share good practice for individual employers, Personal Assistants and the organisations in place to support them.
We know being an individual employer can be liberating but we also understand how much effort is required to make it work. We want the ILG to be a safe place where you can come together, share your experiences and learn together.
Whether you are an individual employer, Direct Payment Support Worker or Personal Assistant come and join our one stop shop for information, documents and peer to peer advice.
We want to utilise our national networks to share and promote great examples of personalised support in action.
Partnering with industry leading organisations to provide expert blogs, tools & documents.
Individual employer guidance and factsheets regularly updated for you. Including regular newsletters and video tutorials.
