ILP provide a range of services for both disabled and non-disabled people. Our services include information, advice, assessment and training, and we offer both prevention and immediate solutions. Our philosophy, however, is that you're the expert in defining your own needs, and we're simply here to help you help yourself. ILP services, therefore, are both flexible and comprehensive.
