Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of support that helps NDIS participants over the age of 18 to move out of their parent's home and live with other housemates who also have the same type of funding. If you get approved after SIL is found to be ‘reasonable and necessary’ in your case, an NDIS funded support worker will help you with your daily tasks at your new accommodation. This includes personal care, household management, taking care of medication and assistance with going out of the house to partake in community activities. But this support does not fund your rent or groceries.
Once you have the funding for SIL included in your NDIS plan, the next step is to find a service provider who offers this support to people with disabilities. They will provide you with trained staff who will come to your new home and take care of your daily functioning.
Usually, Supported Independent Living (SIL) is recommended for NDIS participants who have higher support needs and 24/7 care.
You can make use of the myplace portal on the NDIS website to find a suitable SIL service provider The service provider that you choose will create a document called a ‘roaster of care’ that will illustrate how much support you need and the funds required to cover it. If you are happy with the roaster of care provided by the service provider, you can sign the document verifying that you are satisfied and get things started. You can also sign a service agreement with the service provider but it is not mandatory. But you can always ask your service provider to make changes to the agreement if you are not happy with it.
