Assistance in Shared Living Arrangements – Supported Independent Living
What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is sometimes called group or shared accommodation. It is an NDIS support where a person with a disability lives in a house with other people. People who live in Supported Independent Living also receive day-to-day support with tasks including cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking and help with personal care (such as laundry, showering and dressing). Supported Independent Living often suits those who are unable to live on their own or with their family.
Furthermore, Supported Independent Living (SIL) is the assistance with and/or supervising tasks of daily life in a shared living environment, with a focus on developing the skills of each individual to live as autonomously as possible. The support is provided to each person living in a shared arrangement in accordance with their need. And focus on maximising the person’s capacity to be as independent as possible with household decision making, personal care and domestic tasks.
SIL does not include rent, board and lodging or other day-to-day usual living expenses such as food and activities. It also does not include the capital costs associated with a participant’s accommodation.
