Supported Independent Living Program

Our Supported Independent Living (SIL) Program operates in Brisbane, the North Coast, Kingaroy and Toowoomba.

The program helps young people who have been in out-of-home care to make the transition into independent living. Young people are helped with planning their education and employment and negotiating and managing successful independent living.

We operate different types of supported independent living programs.

Pre-SIL Program

This program is designed to support young people to transition from residential care or foster or kinship care to prepare for independent living. Although some young people may have outgrown their current placement, they may not be ready to take on a role in the SIL Program where supports significantly diminish. The Pre-SIL Program acts as a stepping stone between residential care or foster or kinship care and the SIL Program.
