Frequently Asked Questions

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is an NDIS (national disability insurance scheme) funded service that empowers individuals with higher support needs to live dignified and autonomous lives within their own homes. 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.

  • Tailored assistance with daily tasks: From personal care and meal preparation to managing finances and transportation, SIL offers the support individuals need to navigate everyday living.
  • Skill-building opportunities: The program actively works to equip residents with the skills and confidence to handle tasks independently over time. This might involve practicing budgeting, using assistive technology, or mastering household chores.
  • Care coordination and support: A dedicated team ensures residents receive the necessary medical care, therapy, and other services to maintain their well-being and overall health.


SIL can be provided in various settings, including:

  • Shared living arrangements: Residents live together in a house or apartment with other ndis participants who also require support. This fosters peer support and a sense of community.
  • Individual living arrangements: Some individuals may choose to live independently in their own home or apartment with dedicated support workers and staff available.

Ultimately, Supported Independent Living is about providing individuals with the tools and resources they need to lead fulfilling and independent lives. It’s about recognizing their potential and creating a supportive environment where they can thrive in everyday life.

Learn more here: What is SIL?

Yes, the NDIS can fund Supported Independent Living (SIL), provided it aligns with a participant’s specific needs and goals. 

Similar to all NDIS-funded supports, Supported Independent Living must meet specific criteria.  The amount of SIL funding is determined by the level and type of support necessary for the participant to live as independently as possible. Their individual needs and circumstances are taken into account.

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.

The main difference between SIL (Supports for Daily Living) and SDA (Specialist Disability Accommodation) lies in the types of services they provide.

SIL focuses on support services that assist individuals in managing their daily living activities, such as personal grooming, cooking, and cleaning. SDA, on the other hand, is more related to accommodation and housing that has been specially designed and modified for extensive support.

As a registered NDIS provider on the Sunshine Coast and in Dubbo, we provide our Short Term Accommodation, NDIS Support Coordination, Individual Support, Camps & Getaways and much more!
