Disability and Youth Services
Do you want to live as independently as possible? The NDIS provides Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding so you can find the right staff to support you with daily tasks in your home. SIL funding is also available to those who live in shared accommodation with other NDIS participants.
At CareChoice, our Supported Independent Living (SIL) services are available to participants with allocated SIL funding, no matter their support needs. We have an experienced team that will work with you to develop SIL supports that are completely tailored to your needs. This can include shared hours of one-to-one or two-to-one support and include any type of overnight support.
What is Supported Independent Living?
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is round-the-clock assistance with daily tasks to enable NDIS participants to live as independently as possible while building their skills and capacity with the support of the right staff.
Some of the services CareChoice provides include:

Who can access SIL support?
SIL is best suited for participants who have high support needs. This means you require a significant amount of help throughout the day. The amount of SIL funding you receive depends on the level and type of support you need to live independently, and what is considered reasonable and necessary for your needs. Some factors taken into consideration include:
What’s the difference between SDA and SIL?
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is specifically designed housing for participants with complex care needs, while Supported Independent Living (SIL) is the onsite supports that provide assistance with daily tasks and help participants to develop independent living skills.
Some participants may be eligible for funding for both SDA and SIL, this will be funded separately in your plan to provide more flexibility with service providers.
