Supported Independent Living (SIL) is one type of help or supervision with daily tasks to help you live as independently as possible, while building your skills.

SIL is paid personal support. It includes things like someone to help with personal care tasks or cooking meals. SIL can help build these skills too, so you can be more independent.

SIL is best suited for participants who have high support needs. This means you require a significant amount of help throughout the day.

SIL is support for you at home.You can get SIL if you live in a home with other people. You can also get SIL if you live on your own, but there might be other Personal Care Supports  that suit you better. 

SIL support doesn’t include rent or other day-to-day expenses like groceries.
