What is Supported Independent Living?
Supported Independent Living (or SIL) is an NDIS support. With SIL NDIS participants live alone or with other people in a share house. Depending on support needs and what you need day to day, we have staff available 24 hours, 7 days a week. This support is different to Individualised Living Options, also known as ILO.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation and how is it different?
Some people receive funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation (or SDA). SDA is a property or house that has accessible features. These features to make it easier for people to access support. The NDIS provides the funding to the participant through their plan - SDA funding is for housing, not for services or support. An SDA provider must be registered with the NDIS.
