About Independent Living Services

Independent Living Services (ILS) provides safe, convenient, and affordable supported housing conveniently located within just a few short hours of London and fully accessible by public transport. 

Based in Weston-super-Mare, ILS has a 20-year history of providing high-quality supported housing to Londoners in need.

Our eight abstinence-based houses each feature a private bedroom for every tenant and well-maintained shared spaces. They provide accommodation for up to five tenants, each on their own journey to recovery from substance abuse, mental health disorders, homelessness, domestic violence, and various other reasons for needing safe and supportive accommodation.

If you or a loved one are facing a crisis that could leave you homeless or at risk of personal harm due to substance abuse or mental health disorders, please don’t hesitate to reach out to ILS for an obligation-free discussion about your needs and options.

We provide support to individuals facing:

  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Mental health concerns
  • Domestic abuse
  • Homelessness
  • Life crisis

Our programmes of support

We are committed to helping members of the ILS community rebuild lives that have meaning, bring joy, and are lived with confidence. Our highest goal is to enable and empower those we support to return to fully independent living. 

To achieve this goal, we’ve incorporated support programmes to help with each person’s requirements. Our skilled and experienced team at ILS works closely with local and national organisations to provide effective therapy, education and skills development opportunities, advocacy, and legal support to help our residents transition back to fully independent living.

ILS has been instrumental in some incredible turnaround stories over the last 20 years. We credit much of this success to the community we’ve builta community of people actively working together for a brighter tomorrow. We share our stories, we share our responsibilities, and we help our community members become the best versions of themselves, all within a framework that provides professional support and education.

Independent Living Services: Flourish Beyond Belief

When addiction, abuse, crisis, or mental health disorders have taken control of your life, ILS offers a second chance at a new beginning with safe, supportive, and accessible accommodation for all.

Why choose Independent Living Services?

Moving into supported housing is never easy. There is uncertainty about what to expect, who you will meet, and whether or not it will help you. 

When you choose ILS as your partner in helping you rebuild your life back to independent living, you’re choosing a partner who understands the fears and challenges that brought you to this page. Many of our support staff have come through ILS during their own time of need and can help you settle in and find your feet as seamlessly as possible. 

Recovery from substance abuse, mental health disorders, and crises is a process that doesn’t stick to a predetermined timeline. At ILS in Weston-super-Mare, you can focus on recovery without the temptations, dangers, and threats to your well-being in London. We cannot overstate how important physically removing yourself from potential harm or relapse is, and it’s hard to think of a more ideal and accessible location for this than the beautiful Weston-super-Mare. At around three hours by train from London, you’re far enough away from temptation while still close enough for an occasional visit from loved ones.
