What is SAIL?

SAIL (Safe and Independent Living) is a signposting assessment that puts you in touch with a wide range of help, advice and support services across Wiltshire.
The simple form can be completed by any organisation or individual, and is designed to help an individual get the information they need to live as independently as possible within their community.


How it works

A representative from the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue service will complete the assessment with you identifying which organisations you might need to speak with. Once you have given permission for your details to be shared with these organisations and Wiltshire Council as the administrator of the service the form will be shared with the relevant organisations. Any organisations who receive your information are bound under the General Data Protection Regulations and will deal with personal information in accordance with the law. You will be left with a data subject information sheet explaining what Wiltshire Council will use your data for and which organisations you have given permission to contact you. Within six weeks (often a lot less) the organisations will contact you and support you through the provision of information that will help you to live safely and independently within your community.
