    Participants are considered for SIL based on functional capacity which in turn is indicated by Medical condition. You may be eligible depending on your goals and aspirations, current living situation, independent living skills, supports needed to achieve your living goals, supporting information, reports and assessments, alternative housing arrangements and what help is ‘reasonable and necessary’ for you to receive.

    You will require supporting evidence from relevant health professionals that demonstrate the suitability for SIL accommodation. Once this is obtained, you will need to ask a provider such as Pink Comfort to prepare a quote which will be submitted to the NDIA. You will then need to request a plan review to have your SIL budget incorporated into your NDIS Plan.

    Specialist Disability Accommodation is a contribution to the cost of accessible housing, whereas SIL is a support that allows people to receive help to live more independently at home.

    Supported Independent Living services help with daily tasks so you can live more independently at home. Core Supports may also help participants with daily tasks relating to the home, but also encompass other supports such as community access and transportation. The two services can be used in conjunction with each other

    SIL funding is designed based on the Program of Support, to allow for quality support and to cover indirect costs.  

    The funding amount you will be approved for will depend on the SIL quote including Roster Of Care that your provider will prepare for you based on your care needs, as well as the care needs of any other residents in your SIL home.

    SIL is for the purpose of providing assistance for daily tasks in order for participants to live independently at home and does not include: 

    • Everyday expenses 
    • Holidays
    • Care in hospital
    • Activities outside of the home, such as transport
    • SDA related costs

    To get ready for your meeting with a Pink Comfort Service Delivery Manager who will assist your application, you should consider what your needs are, what your living goals are and what help you are currently receiving. We may also ask you to provide:

    • Clinical assessments and reports
    • Behavioural assessments or plans
    • Existing NDIS plan
    • Medical condition report
    • Incident reports
    • Risk assessments
    • Statements from previous providers or landlords
