What is Supported Independent Living?

Example of door to supported accommodation house

Under the NDIS Supported Accommodation is referred to as Supported Independent Living (SIL). SIL delivers onsite disability and daily living services.

Supported Independent Living provides housing within the community for people with disability. It includes the provision of support services.

What does Supported Independent Living do?

Supported Independent Living can help people with disability to:

  • Find independence
  • Get involved in the community
  • Make choices about their life
  • Build skills and learn new things

At Aspire, Supported Independent Living is provided through a shared living environment.

Living in a group home means you get to care for yourself while having support available. A person living in SIL does things like:

  • Cleaning and looking after the home
  • Shopping, for groceries for the home and for yourself
  • Sharing home responsibilities like preparing food
  • Being part of the local community, like going to social activities

How do you know if you are eligible for Supported Independent Living?

You may be eligible if you:

  • Have a disability under the Disability Act 2006
  • Have to change the way you live because it does not meet your needs anymore.
