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)?

For many people with a disability, living independently is a key goal in their NDIS plan.

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

In Supported Independent Living, you will live in a property such as a house or villa, with 2-7 other people. You will also be provided with day-to-day support such as with personal care, cleaning and cooking.

What does the NDIS fund?

Supported Independent Living is funded under the NDIS.

As part of Supported Independent Living, you will receive:

  • Capacity building 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 and covers the  cost of changing their physical environment.
