SIL (formerly known as Supported Independent Living) has been in operation since 2009 providing “Enhanced Community Recovery” services for people with complex mental health needs. Our primary purpose is to support the early or timely transition of individuals from hospital and medium/low secure settings to a community based, high support service, providing self-contained accommodation with individual tenancies, supported by a 24/7 team of Recovery Support Workers with ‘wrap around’ support from our Quality and Practice Team.
We believe that our services represent a missing piece of the mental health pathway, and that many individuals remain in secure units and hospitals because of a lack of suitable alternatives. At best, if an alternative does exist, it is often residential or nursing care, which we believe is less conducive to maintaining or developing the necessary skills to encourage and foster ‘Recovery’.
