Supported Independent Living

Welcome to CHADD - SILS

Supported Independent Living Service

SILS provides care & support services for vulnerable adults with a range of long-term mental health conditions across Dudley Borough. We work in partnership with Dudley MBC and other agencies to promote independence and to provide individually designed packages of housing, care and support.

Our services are for adults 18 and over. We help to support adults who have physical or sensory impairments, mental health issues, frail older people and people who for any other reason are unable to care for or protect themselves. We most often provide services to adults with mental health support needs.

SILS can support you to:

  • make plans for each change to your life
  • work towards independence
  • have choice and control
  • be yourself!

We will make sure that you:

  • have your rights
  • have choice
  • have privacy
  • are valued for who you are
  • have the opportunity to have a fulfilling life
  • can take part in your own community if you wish
  • have independence even if there is some risk
