Supported Independent Living Application Process

Reflect on your current situation, future goals, skills, and potential for improvement. Assess the support you currently receive from non-paid sources like family and friends.

Obtain assessments from Allied Health Professionals for NDIS eligibility. These assessments should cover the impact of your disability and your housing and support needs.

Obtain a written report from an Occupational Therapist, addressing your housing needs and any situational changes, such as ageing parents no longer able to provide support.

A psychology or GP report can further support your candidacy for SIL. These reports should indicate why you are a suitable candidate for SIL.

Your Support Coordinator should submit a detailed report outlining your housing solutions and a transition plan.

You, your family members, and carers may discuss your situation and disabilities to provide evaluators with a comprehensive view of your needs and abilities.

Maple Community Services is available to assist throughout the application or reapplication process, ensuring completeness and accuracy.

The NDIS will make a final decision on the types of services that will benefit you or your loved one.

You can rely on Maple as experts in helping our clients gain SIL approval whenever it is appropriate. We are happy to help you with your or your loved one’s SIL referral. With our fast turnaround time on referrals, we can help you get started more quickly than most SIL providers.

FAQs on Supported Independent Living Brisbane

In Brisbane, there are two primary types of support under the NDIS for people living with disabilities, and the distinction between them is consistent nationwide:

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is designed to cater to participants with significant functional impairments or very high support needs. This support encompasses housing that is either custom-built or modified to ensure it meets the specific requirements of its occupants. The funding for SDA specifically targets the costs associated with the housing infrastructure itself, without extending to cover in-person support services.

Supported Independent Living (SIL), on the other hand, is focused on providing assistance or supervision with day-to-day tasks, enabling NDIS participants to live as autonomously as possible in their own homes. The funding for SIL is primarily intended for the services delivered by disability support workers on a personal basis. Unlike SDA, SIL emphasises the support needed by participants for their daily living, rather than characteristics of the accommodation where they reside.
