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.
Supported Independent Living is funded under Core Supports – Assistance with Daily Life in your NDIS plan. The NDIS does not fund the cost of rent, board, transport, and other day-to-day expenses such as food and activities.

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?
If you have an intelectual, physical or psychosocial disability and you are unable to live independently, Supported Independent Living (SIL) could be the right choice for you.
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is an NDIS support where you can live with other people with a disability or on your own. You will also receive support with everyday tasks like cleaning, cooking and personal care.
Challenge Disability Services has residential Supported Independent Living homes across NSW and South East Queensland, and are quickly expanding.
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is assessed and funded separately to SIL.
