Supported Independent Living (SIL) enables people with disabilities to live independently through paid personal support. Using their SIL funding, NDIS participants can access the assistance of trained support workers to successfully navigate their daily life activities. Supported Independent Living is especially helpful for participants with higher support needs, who require ongoing assistance at all times including overnight support. This allows them to achieve their home and living goals despite the severity of their disability.
Supported Independent Living may be the most suitable option for NDIS participants if they are living with other participants and sharing assistance with them.
Apart from assistance with daily living tasks, participants can also receive guidance and training to develop essential life skills through SIL funding. Life skills are essential for people with disabilities to live independently and participate fully in their communities.
NDIS support workers who provide assistance with daily living tasks such as cooking,
cleaning, showering, personal care and many other household chores work with the
participants to gradually increase their skills and knowledge regarding how to navigate these tasks on their own. The goal of SIL support is to enable the participants to handle some of these day-to-day activities independently over time. Developing essential life skills in the participants will help to improve their self-confidence and overall quality of life.
