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.

keep track of the finances

You can log in to our systems at any time and see the economy regarding your personal assistance. You can also always contact us. Every year you get a report of the economy in your personal assistance.

Decide for yourself

In STIL, we believe everyone has the capacity to decide for themselves. We have several methods to make it possible for everyone to have control in their lives.

Choosing STIL
