Community engagement plays a vital role in enabling individuals with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives. When it comes to participants who aspire to live independently, being actively involved in their communities is an important part of their journey towards independent living. Supported Independent Living is an NDIS-funded support that helps individuals with higher support needs to live on their own with assistance from NDIS support workers. Service providers need to employ effective strategies to ensure that these participants have the opportunity to venture outside their homes build social connections and become active members of our society.
SIL participants require a significant amount of help from support workers to take care of their daily living activities. But gradually over time, the support workers will focus on improving the independent living skills of the participants. This enables them to become more self-sufficient and increases their freedom. With assistance from SIL support workers, participants can pursue new hobbies, participate in community events and connect with new people. For some people, community engagement could also mean vising friends and family more often. This will foster a sense of belonging and independence which leads to the creation of a more inclusive future. SIL participants can also engage in indoor activities like dancing, baking or cooking where they can interact with other participants who are sharing their supports with them.

Active involvement of individuals with disabilities in the community will promote understanding and play a vital role in creating inclusive spaces.
