SILC helps disabled people, older people and carers to live independently and make the most of the support available in Surrey. We support people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities, people with mental health problems and people with other hidden impairments.
We (as in Surrey Independent Living Council - not Oxted Health Centre) can help people to:
· Access a wide range of services
· Decide what support options are right for them
· Organise and purchase the support they need
· Manage your on-going support
· Have a voice in health and social care
The Surrey Hubs are local centres for information and support to help people stay independent. These user-led hubs are accessible to everyone, and offer a place to discuss your own needs or look for information and advice for yourself or a family member.
The Hubs are designed to cater specifically for the needs of disabled and older people as well as carers and are all based in central high street locations at the heart of the community, so they are very easy to find.
The information and support in the hubs is provided by people who are themselves disabled and therefore understand the issues you may be dealing with.
