Setting Up and Managing Shared Supported Living

An informative and engaging starting point for Support Providers looking to effectively set up and manage shared Supported Independent Living (SIL).

Why take this course?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) arrangements are becoming increasingly flexible and varied. And perhaps rightly so, because everyone’s support needs are unique. Buuut this makes it tricky for you, the provider, to set up and review SIL environments that are in line with best practice.


This practical and engaging workshop will guide you through how to set up shared support from scratch or review existing support models. Over 4 hours, you’ll understand the key focus areas, get clear on any further training you might need to do, and feel confident once you know what you didn’t realise you needed to know. You know?
