What is Supported Independent Living?
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is assistance with or supervision of tasks of daily life in a shared living environment to help you develop skills to live as independently as possible. This is funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). If you are under age 65 and you have a disability you may be eligible for NDIS funding for SIL. To learn more visit https://www.ndis.gov.au
What does the NDIS Fund?
Supported Independent Living (SIL) covers assistance provided to a participant to live independently in the housing option of their choice. It does not cover day to day living expenses such as rent, food and activity costs etc. Sapphire Support will work with you to develop a SIL quote for the NDIS, who will then if approved, add the appropriate level of funding to your plan.
Who do we support?
We can support people with different needs – from low needs to complex care. We can provide 24-hour shared or 1:1 support, with active nights or sleepover. We will work with you to design the support system that you want and need.
