When will you be starting reassessments of ILF users and when do you anticipate completing those assessments.
What arrangements are you putting in place for those ILF users you have not reassessed by 30th June to continue funding their current ILF care packages until an assessment has been carried out. Bearing in mind that many of these ILF users will not currently have Direct Payments set up with the Local Authority.
