We are a user-led charity helping people who have care needs to be independent.
We provide a range of services to help people gain and maintain their independence.
We listen to what our customers want and develop our services around their needs.
We invest all surpluses into improving and widening our services.
We're led by our members - people with health and social care needs and their carers.
“A society where people can live their lives independently, where everyone has the
same choices and freedoms regardless of any disability, impairment or caring responsibilities.”
“The support I received from ILA to work out my DP budget and with words of encouragement
keeps me going…my personal advisor guides me on what and when to do things, the leaflets
are very useful, there is always someone to talk to every time you call for advice.
A message from our Chief Executive, Philippa Thompson.
At our AGM in October I talked in my presentation about ensuring that the ILA is
fit for a future in which charities and not for profit organisations can take the
lead in shaping social, community and healthcare services which enable disabled people
to live independent lives.
Since joining the ILA in January 2011, I have learned a great deal about the depth
of vision and values in the organisation and I feel that the time is right to think
about how we articulate that to the outside world. We are at a point when we need
to consider how our “brand” supports us and helps us to achieve our objectives. There
are lots of reasons for reviewing our brand now:
· In January 2012 the ILA took on some of the activities of Voice for Disability
· Over the past 4 years the ILA has developed a wider diverse range of services that
support disabled people to live independently
· We are re-designing and re-launching our website in Spring 2013 to be more useful
and more responsive to you.
