The SIL Application Guide: Your Path to Independent Living

Welcome to the SIL Application Guide, your comprehensive resource designed for individuals with disabilities, their families, and support coordinators seeking to navigate the application process for Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Our guide aims to demystify the process, providing clarity and offering valuable insights for a successful application.

Understanding Supported Independent Living (SIL)


Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of support designed to assist individuals with disabilities in living independently within their homes. It encompasses various forms of assistance or supervision with daily tasks such as personal care, household chores, and meal preparation. SIL empowers individuals to lead fulfilling lives while enhancing their skills and capabilities. Specifically tailored for those with higher support needs, SIL ensures continuous support, whether it’s throughout the day or even overnight.


What SIL Covers


SIL can manifest in different living arrangements, including one’s own home, rented accommodation, or group homes shared with other NDIS participants. It covers a range of supports.

While SIL primarily funds support workers for ongoing care, other NDIS plan items like Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) take care of rent.
