Individual Independent Living FAQs

What Is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living, or SIL for short, is a 24/7 support system that enables people with a disability to live as independently as possible, but still, have access to help and/or supervision for their daily living tasks and personal care. You get the opportunity to develop your skills and independence, while at the same time living in an environment that provides support and helps when needed.

The NDIS defines Supported Independent Living (SIL) as help with and/or supervision of daily tasks to develop the skills of an individual to live as independently as possible. These are the supports provided to a participant in their home, regardless of property ownership, and can be in a shared or individual arrangement.

Where Can I Find Supported Independent Living Vacancies?

A number of disability service providers, including Sapphire Support, can help you with finding a vacancy within a SIL accommodation building, be it a unit or a house. You would have to check with us about the suitability of the location and the type of supports you would need before you could make a clear decision.

Sapphire Support currently manages homes spread throughout the Sunshine Coast Region from Noosa to Scarborough (North Brisbane). We are continuously expanding our services into new suburbs so it is best to contact us for the location of appropriate services close to you. Call us on 1300 881 884 to find out more.

Can I Get Funding For Supported Independent Living?

SIL is best suited for participants who have high support needs. This means you require a significant amount of help throughout the day. If SIL is the most appropriate support for you, you will receive funding for this assistance as part of your NDIS plan.

The amount of SIL funding you receive will depend on the level and type of support you need to live as independently as you can.

During your planning meeting, you should talk about what supports you need at home and discuss whether SIL is suitable for you. Your planner will then assess if it is a support that is reasonable and necessary for your needs. Call us on 1300 881 884 to find out more.

Is Sapphire Support an Approved NDIS SIL Provider?

Yes. Sapphire Support is registered as a SIL Provider with NDIS (#4050043190). Call us on 1300 881 884 for more information.

What Are The NDIS Supported Independent Living Guidelines?

The overall guidelines of the NDIS regarding SIL are to determine whether it is “reasonable and necessary”. A full list can be seen here. A service or support:

  • must be related to a participant’s disability
  • must not include day-to-day living costs not related to your disability support needs, such as groceries
  • should represent value for money
  • must be likely to be effective and work for the participant, and
  • should take into account support given to you by other government services, your family, carers, networks and the community.
