STIL, Stockholm Cooperative for Independent Living
The cooperative works in the following way: Each member has his or her personal assistance needs assessed by the local government or, since 1994, by the national social insurance scheme. The need is expressed in a certain number of hours of services a week. The cooperative charges a certain price per hour of services. Each member receives an amount that covers the cost of the numbers of hours that he needs. The funds are transferred by the national insurance fund or local government to the individual?s subaccount in STIL. Thus, each member has a budget that he/she has to administer. The funds can be used for personal assistance only and have to be accounted for. The budget covers assistants'wages, their social insurance as well as STIL's administrative costs.
