The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for the participants to live independently. During the planning conversation, the participants can discuss their home and living goals which will help the NDIS to include the necessary supports in the participant’s NDIS plan. Supported Independent Living (SIL) is one type of home and living support funded by the NDIS for participants with higher support needs. It is best suitable for those who need intense support at home around the clock, including overnight support. Apart from SIL, the NDIS also provides funding for a variety of other home and living options depending on the individual needs of the participant.
Supported Independent Living (SIL) can help people with disabilities, especially young adult participants, to move out of their parent’s homes and lead a life of their own. Most of the time, participants who have SIL funding in their NDIS plan share housing with other participants who also have SIL funding in their plan. This will provide the participants with an opportunity to live with people of similar ages and interests. It creates a safe and secure environment which provides space for growth and building social connections. Through Supported Independent Living, the NDIS covers the cost of paid personal assistance and not the expenses related to renting, utilities or groceries. Along with helping the participant to live independently, SIL support assists them in building their skills as well.
