Charity: Services for Independent Living
We provide care and support services that enable disabled and older people to make their own choices over how they want to live their lives. We support people to live in their own homes and within their community; from providing care in the home, to supporting them in social activities or education, managing their own PA and finances, to providing training; we’ve got it all covered. SIL was formed by a group of disabled people and continues to be led by the people that need us; around half of our Trustees are service users or family carers. We think this makes us who we are; a charity which is committed to helping people to live as independently as possible. Helping them live confidently within their own homes and making their own choices over how they want to live their lives. Their knowledge and experiences help to inform our decisions and drive us as an organisation. Our focus is on people not profits. SIL’S Vision - To enable people affected by disabilities to exercise choice and control, to live independent lives, and to actively participate in society. SIL’S Mission Statement - The provider of choice for individual care and support, empowering people to lead an independent life. We work in partnership with Local Authorities, the Health Service and other voluntary and local organisations and individuals to improve the lives of disabled and older people and their family carers, and to facilitate their participation in and integration into society.
