What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is an NDIS support where you can live with other people with a disability or on your own. You will also receive support with everyday tasks like cleaning, cooking and personal care.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is assessed and funded separately to SIL.

  • Learning to catch public transport.

Will I be included in household decisions?

Yes! All our customers are part of the household routines and decisions.

This can be done in different ways depending what each household prefers. As an example, in some houses, the housemates choose to sit down for a meeting each week to make decisions about their home.

Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living is funded under Core Supports – Assistance with Daily Life in your NDIS plan.

The NDIS does not fund the cost of rent, board, transport, and other day-to-day expenses such as food and activities.

Please note: We bill in line with the NDIS Price Guide, which generally increases annually.
