Frequently Asked Questions

Who can access NDIS supported independent living funding?

Independent supported living is available for NDIS participants who have a reasonable and necessary need for daily assistance from support workers with personal care, household tasks, social activities, and life skills.

SIL is suitable for people who want to live on their own or with others, but need some support to do so. To access SIL services, you need to have it included in your NDIS plan.

How do I get disability supported accommodation in my NDIS plan?

To get SIL funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you need to have a planning meeting with an NDIS representative, where you can discuss your goals, needs, and preferences. You can also bring a support coordinator, a family member, or a friend to help you with the process. You will need to provide evidence of your need for SIL, such as an assessment report from an occupational therapist or a support worker.

You will also need to consider your chosen SIL provider, the type and level of support you need (whether that’s higher support for people with very high support needs or more informal supports for people with lesser needs), the location and suitability of your home, and the number and compatibility of your housemates.

Are there many supported independent living vacancies?

Supported independent living (SIL) vacancies are the available places or rooms in a SIL home that can be occupied by a new NDIS participant. The number and availability of SIL vacancies may vary depending on the location, type, and size of the SIL home, as well as the demand and supply of supported independent living providers in the area.
