Supported Independent Living

SIL PROCESS

At Sapphire we provide supported independent living options to suit you based on your NDIS Plan and preferences.

Step 1 – Meeting

After our first contact, we will meet & ask you (and the people around you) lots of questions to get to know you, your likes and wants. We will discuss how it all works and you can get to know us better too! 

Step 2 – Accommodation

Based on the information we gather at the meeting, we may show you some readily available accommodation or we start searching for the right place and maybe for the right housemate(s).

Step 3 – Moving In

You will meet the Team of Support Workers we specifically choose for you.
Based on the NDIS approval of our SIL Pack, we will fill in some final forms and then you are finally all set to move in!

 

 

LIVE YOUR LIFE YOUR WAY

At Sapphire we provide supported independent living options to suit you based on your NDIS plan:

 

A New Home

Moving into a new home is an exciting experience, but there is always a lot to consider.  It can be a trying time for you, and for your friends and family. As a small, local organisation with a big heart, we are there to support you each step of the way.

We are committed to helping you to live your best life, the way that you choose. We want to learn all about you; your hopes, dreams and aspirations. We will ask you lots of questions as we get to know you, to ensure that we can provide you with the best support possible.

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

NDIS Funding

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.

If you are not sure wether you are eligible for SIL or not, contact your Support Coordinator or the Local Area Coordinator. You can also call the NDIS on 1800 800 110 for more information.

Who 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.
