Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of NDIS support that helps you with daily life. It includes things like having someone help you with personal care activities like showering and dressing, help with cooking meals, shopping for groceries, medication management and administration, keeping your home safe and tidy, or help getting to and from appointments. SIL providers can also help you build different skills, so you can live as independently as possible. To find out about our current SIL vacancies, please get in touch by calling 1300 575 740.

Who is Supported Independent Living for?

SIL is best suited to NDIS participants with higher support needs – for example, if you need overnight support, 24/7 care, person-to-person work provided by a support worker, or a significant amount of help throughout the day. SIL is available to people with a disability who are living alone, or with a group of people in a shared home. It can give you an opportunity to be independent, make friends and enjoy life while receiving the support you need. Keep in mind that if you live alone, Supported Independent Living is only one of many support options available through the NDIS.

  • Medication management and administration. 
  • Help with personal care activities, provided with dignity, compassion and respect. 
  • Help building daily living skills with tasks such as preparing meals, cooking and cleaning.
  • Assistance with behaviour support plans.
  • Help with household tasks.

ADCS’s approach to SIL is entirely client-centred. We listen to you, understand who you are, and work with you, so you can achieve your goals and live the lifestyle you want. We create friendly and supportive environments to live in: places where everyone is respected, valued, and has choice over their supports and how they live.
