Frequently Asked Questions

Supportive Independent Living (SIL) helps residents become more self-sufficient by providing the accommodations and assistance they need to live empowered lives. These spaces typically include skill-building support and other forms of care and coordination, but the ultimate goal is to help residents become as independent as possible.

This is an assessment that looks into the functional status and support required for individuals eligible for supported independent living. Essentially, it determines what they require to live safely and independently and what needs they possess.

Individuals registered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are automatically eligible for SIL funding, which can be used to cover the costs of private, shared, or community living arrangements, as well as live-in support services. In addition to NDIS registration, individuals must meet certain eligibility criteria in order to receive SIL funding. These criteria include having a disability that significantly affects one’s ability to live independently, being aged 18 years or older, and being an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
