AILN provides information, advice and support to people living in North, South and East Ayrshire who have been assessed by their Local Authority and eligible for Self-directed Support. We provide services to people who opt for Option 1 of the 4 Options available and who would like to take greater control in organising and managing their own support.
AILN also provides a budget management and payroll service to assist people to manage the payment of Personal Assistants they may choose to recruit and/or the agencies they may choose to provide their support.
AILN has a staff team who provide the services day to day and they are managed by our Board of Directors who are all volunteers.
We are currently seeking to recruit a small number of new Directors to join our existing Board.
