Housing Options

Housing Options

The NDIS can assist participants to live with increased independence. Participants and their families can discuss their living goals as part of their planning conversation with the NDIS. Statewide Health and Human Services can provide assistance with a range of housing options to encourage increased independence, choice and control and overall improved quality of life. These include:

1. Supported Independent Living (SIL)
2. Specialised Disability Accommodation (SDA)
3. Individualised Living Options (ILO)

Read on to learn more about each of these services provided by Statewide Health and Human Services.

Supported Independent Living (SIL):

Statewide Health and Human Services can provide supported independent living options.

How can SIL help you?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is available for participants with high support needs. We may also assist you in finding suitable shared accommodation arrangements with other NDIS participants. Supports may be shared 1:1, 2:1 or overnight depending on the participant’s needs.

Supported Independent Living arrangements will help you feel more safe and confident in your home and community. Staff are trained to ensure your safety and help participants live as independently as possible. Staff may also work with therapists to build their capacity and pursue NDIS goals.

What services can SIL provide?

Supports that may be provided under SIL include but are not limited to:

  • Getting ready for the day; Showering, dressing, toileting
  • Meal preparation
  • Household tasks such as cleaning, laundry, gardening
  • Shopping

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA):

Statewide Health and Human Services can provide specialist disability accommodation services.

How can SDA help you?

SDA refers to specialist housing solutions for participants with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. This is funding in relation to the homes and physical dwellings rather than the supports received. A well-designed house in the right location can allow for more independent living arrangements, increased community connection and access to informal supports.

Individualised Living Option:

Statewide Health and Human Services can provide individualised living options.

How can ILO help you?

Independent living arrangements provide a high level of choice for NDIS participants. These supports are suitable for participants who have safe and suitable accommodation, either living independently or even sharing with family, friends or housemates. ILO arrangements are highly individualised to assist participants to pursue their NDIS goals with the assistance of their supports.
