SILC - Supported Individualised Lifestyle Choices

Welcome to SILC

Supported Individualised Lifestyle Choices (SILC Limited) formally Supported Living (BOP) Limited, commenced business in 1991 as a disability service provider. Today, we provide support and solutions for any person who requires assistance with day to day living. People who:
  • Live with long term disability, injury or illness.
  • Who have age related challenges.
  • Who have temporary disability through illness or injury.

We provide a holistic service, which to us means that we provide the support that allows people to live their life to the fullest, no matter what their challenge. A holistic approach is characterised by looking at everything influencing an individual and addressing all these life-defining things.

Our commitment to quality services stems from the belief that any person regardless of their challenges has the right to live rich and full lives, doing the things they enjoy in their own community and feeling that they belong in their community.

A whole list of things, some little, some big add up to produce this feeling, but a quality valued lifestyle where a person feels empowered and in charge often depends very much on the organisation providing support and its staff, or the individuals providing support. We believe this is possible if they are provided with appropriate and timely support and solutions.

SILC employs, supports, and trains a pool of staff bringing into play these philosophies, and in turn offer to provide support and find solutions for people their aspirations and lifestyles. The way in which we do this is only limited by the imagination of those planning and delivering the service. We are attracting and training a calibre of staff who are making a commitment to those beliefs and who want to contribute, thus offering an individualised, committed and personalised service.

Peter James (1957 - 2012), the founder of SILC Limited, was passionate about working with people, recognising them as individuals, their gifts and challenges and so it continues today.

Peter's story provides some background on how SILC Ltd came to be.
