What is Supported Independent Living?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is designed to provide support and accommodation for individuals with permanent disabilities. The funding enables them to live independently. Under this program, participants can access specialised SIL housing arrangements and receive personalised assistance.

This support may include help with daily living activities, household tasks, personal care, and access to community services. It aims to empower participants, enhance their quality of life, and promote greater independence. SIL also means ensuring that our participants have access to the broader community services they need.

Options Under SIL NDIS Depending on Your Needs

We offer a range of options under SIL accommodations that meet diverse needs and preferences. Our support workers ensure that each NDIS client receives the right care and support. We provide:

  • Shared living: Our shared living arrangements promote community and companionship. Participants can stay with housemates in a comfortable home while receiving support.
  • Independent living: This option allows individuals to live in private residences. It gives them the freedom they desire while receiving independent living support from our dedicated team.
  • In-home respite care: This is great for those who need short-term accommodation or a break for their carers. Our in-home respite care assists NDIS participants in the familiar environment of their residences or our facility centre.

  • Having a permanent and significant disability
