What is Supported Independent Living (SIL) at Access4u?

Supported Independent Living (also referred to as SIL) is a NDIS support. At Access4u, it comes under our Home and Living supports and can be found in your NDIS plan under CORE Supports.

According to the NDIS, SIL is a support that helps you “live in your home. It includes help or supervision with daily tasks, like personal care or cooking meals. It helps you live as independently as possible, while building your skills.

Access4u offers SIL. Learn more about this support in our blog.


Supported independent living is for people with higher support needs, who need some level of help at home all the time.”

If you have Supported Independent Living available to you in your NDIS plan, it may include:
• help with personal care
• building skills - like meal preparation and cooking, cleaning, and developing a routine and social skills
• help to action any behaviour support plans you have
• support with supervision, personal safety and security
• support to give you your medication and attending medical appointments
• support to get to and from community access activities.

It does not include the cost of your groceries, your rent, any utilities, and does not include supported not related to your disability – including household budgeting or expenses related to travelling or holidays.

At Access4u, we want you to be able to choose where you live, who you live with and what support you need.

We provide long-term and permanent accommodation to SIL participants. We know that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work – so, we’ll ensure that you’re living with people that you get along with.

Your unique care and support needs are always considered to ensure this service meets you and your personal goals. After all, it’s your choice and your life – we’re just here to help!
