What is NDIS Supported Independent Living?

SIL NDIS is designed to provide stable and comfortable housing to those that require extra assistance in their day-to-day lives. If you have higher support needs, we ensure you receive 24/7 support with anything you require, whether that is cooking, cleaning, or simply taking care of your physical and mental health. We provide these services to you either within a shared or individual home, based on how comfortable you are living with others in a similar situation. To be eligible for NDIS SIL, you must be 18 years or older, and have NDIS funding in your plan that can be used for SIL services. 

It all begins with an initial meeting where we get to know you and understand your unique needs and what is important to you, to ensure we provide you with the right support from the beginning. Once we better understand your situation, we arrange a viewing at one of our houses to make sure you are comfortable with your new living arrangement and those who you may also live with. Finally, we assist you with moving into your new home, before supporting you with ongoing help with daily tasks and 24/7 availability for anything you may need.

Frequently Asked Questions

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a NDIS funded service that is designed to support those who require support to live as independently as possible. SIL takes place in both shared and individual accommodation settings.

SIL at Karakan is designed to help those with mental health needs and psychosocial disabilities. To be eligible you must be 18 years or older and have NDIS funding in your plan that can be used for SIL services.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) are both essential components of the NDIS, but they serve different purposes:

 

  • SIL: SIL focuses on providing the necessary support and assistance to help you live independently in your chosen accommodation, regardless of whether it’s specialised or not.

 

  • SDA: Specialist Disability Accommodation, on the other hand, refers to housing specifically designed for people with  functional impairments or very high support needs. SDA aims to provide a physical environment that enables individuals to live comfortably and with the required level of support.
