NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Independent living is essential for people with disabilities as it enables them to take charge of their own lives and make their own decisions. This sense of autonomy is fundamental to their dignity and self-respect. Living independently means they can decide on their living situations, decide who they live with, and plan their daily schedules. This freedom gives them the opportunity to explore their interests, participate in meaningful activities, and shape their identities. Independent living also builds a sense of accountability and self- dependence in people with disabilities, essential for personal growth and confidence. NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL) facilitates independent living among individuals with disabilities by providing the ncessary assistance with daily tasks such as personal care, household chores, and community activities. SIL ensures that individuals have the support they need to live independently hile still having access to help when needed, promoting both freedom and security.

Through Supported Independent Living, eligible participants can access the assistance of NDIS support workers. They provide tailored support based on the participant’s needs, preferences, and goals. This can include assistance with daily living activities such as personal care and household tasks as well as community participation.

What You Need to Know

  • Eligibility and Funding: SIL is designed for individuals who need support throughout the day to live independently. Funding for SIL is provided through the NDIS, but it does not cover personal living costs like rent or groceries.
  • Personalised Support Plans: Each SIL support plan is tailored to the individual’s needs and goals, ensuring they receive personalised care that fits their unique circumstances.
  • Shared Living Arrangements: SIL often involves living in a shared environment with other people with disabilities. This can help foster a sense of community and provide opportunities for social interaction.
  • Service Agreement: Have a service agreement with your SIL provider as it ensures that both parties have a mutual understanding of the services to be provided, how they will be delivered, and how any disputes will be resolved. It helps to set clear expectations and provides a framework for accountability and transparency, ensuring the participant’s needs are met effectively.
