Welcome to STIL, founders of Independent Living in Sweden
STIL is short for The Founders of Independent Living in Sweden.
STIL is an organization by people with disabilities. STIL has existed since 1984. We were the first in Sweden to offer personal assistance.
We know what personal assistance is. We were the ones behind LSS, the law that guarantees us social support. Many other assistance coordinators say you can decide for yourself. But they view assistance as a matter of health or social care. They listen to politicians and media that call us weak. Since 1984, we at STIL have never changed our way of looking at assistance. You need to have control over your life. STIL is a cooperative without profit. Everyone on our board have personal assistance. Many who work at our office have personal assistance.
It is easy to have your assistance in STIL.
