What Is SIL Housing?

Supported Independent Living Housing

Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living, (sometimes called “shared accommodation”) is an NDIS support where a person with disabilities can lives with others with access to a whole lot of support from daily tasks, personal care to learning life skills!

Funding includes money for up to 24/7 support where necessary and money for carers, supervisors and other independent living needs. SIL does not pay for accommodation rental costs but the services provided inside the home.

If you are striving towards independent living, UNITED FOR CARE can help provide Short or Medium Term Accommodation or Specialised Disability Accommodation packaged with our care services aimed at bringing you closer to your independence every day!

How It Works

SIL can be used in your own home, your parents home or in shared accommodation of between 2 and 7 people, according to your needs and preferences. It is well to remember that shared accommodation has financial benefits that should be considered.

Careful consideration is given to the needs of all NDIS SIL participants in a shared home and your compatibility with the other residents. We can assist you with finding available places and in cooperation with your OT and your own personal preferences make a good match.

Taking The Step

Supported Independent living is a goal that many of our clients aspire to and can bring more freedom and more personal responsibility for their own life. If you are interested in SIL make a point of raising the topic at your NDIS planning meetings.

Be aware that it can take a while to transition from supported home living to supported independent living. The journey may need a sequence of skill training sessions to ensure a smooth passage.

United For Care can assist you with all facets of this process. Please get in touch.
