Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living is an NDIS support where you live in shared accommodation with 2 - 7 other people.

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is sometimes called group or shared accommodation.

It is an NDIS support where a person with a disability lives in a property (such as a house) with 2-7 other people. People who live in Supported Independent Living also receive day-to-day support with tasks including cleaning, cooking and help with personal care (such as showering and dressing).

Supported Independent Living often suits those who are unable to live on their own or with their family.

What does the NDIS fund?

Supported Independent Living is funded under the NDIS through Core Supports.

As part of Supported Independent Living, you will receive:

  • Supports such as daily living skills training, money and household management
  • Support with personal care such as showering and dressing
  • Domestic assistance such as cleaning and laundry
  • Home modifications (not provided by House with No Steps)

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

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is assessed and funded separately under the NDIS. This funding is for people with very high needs who need specialist housing.
