Supported independent living

Live life on your terms while enjoying the care and support you need.

At Shine Social and Communities, we believe everyone should have access to safe and nurturing living environments, regardless of their needs and disabilities. 

That’s why, today, our supported independent living (SIL) spaces are tailored to the specific requirements of our beneficiaries.

We assist with and supervise daily activities in a shared living environment, with a focus on empowering, supporting, and giving people the skills they need to live life on their terms. 

We also coordinate with other care providers to ensure everything is progressing smoothly and that our stakeholders have access to the right support.

When you choose Shine for your living needs, or for someone you know, we help you find a place you can call home; one that helps you live independently and harmoniously.

Testimonials

Our son has been supported in housing through a difficult adjustment period of transition from interstate. Shine’s staff have supported him in setting in and beginning to engage in more meaningful activities. We have been given the opportunity to raise any concerns and now feel we can look forward to a much brighter future for him. Shine has always been encouraging, enthusiastic and professional. We are so glad we found Shine on moving to Queensland and consider them to be energetic and deeply concerned to do their best for the individual person, in providing our son with the tools for a meaningful life.

We think that Shine is absolutely wonderful and could not have chosen a better place for Lachlan to live. We appreciate everything Shine does for Lachlan. Shine goes above and beyond with everything they do. The support workers are amazing and so thoughtful.

Shine SC have supported my intellectually disabled daughter to live independently. My experience with Shine SC has been exceptional. Shine SC found suitable people for my daughter to live with, assist with looking for and applying for homes and now provides support in the home. Support includes daily and overnight support workers providing assistance with everyday living including meal planning, cooking, cleaning, daily & social activities and preparing for her week. Shine SC has been there every step of the way and always put my daughter’s best interest first, of course, consulting with me along the way.

FAQ

What is supported independent living?

SIL refers to the short- and long-term accommodation offered to individuals with disabilities, who require certain types of support but wish to live independent and empowered lives. These spaces provide skill-building support and the other types of care and coordination required.

What is a SIL assessment?

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.

Who qualifies for SIL?

Generally, any individual with a disability may be eligible for SIL. Individuals registered under the NDIS, however, are also eligible for funding to meet these requirements across private, shared, and community living or even live-in support.

Do you support Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding applications?

Yes. In addition to the general NDIS coordination support we provide, we also help our stakeholders figure out SDA funding and how they can use this to find accommodation arrangements that work best for them.
