How is Supported Independent Living different from Specialist Disability Accommodation?SIL and SDA support people with disability, but in different ways. Supported Independent Living (SIL) provides the daily supports you need to be independent, while Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) provides specialised accommodation for people with high support needs.

SIL covers the supports that you need to live independently. This includes things like personal care, help with cooking and cleaning, transport support, and learning independent living skills. While many people access SIL while living with other NDIS participants, SIL funding is flexible and can be used in different types of homes, depending on what best meets your needs – for example, if you live at home with your family, alone in your own home, or in group accommodation.

Specialist Disability Accommodation covers the cost of living in an accessible home. It is intended for people with very high support needs, who require certain features to be independent. SDA includes different types of homes like buildings with accessibility features, robust housing, or homes with specialised equipment to meet high care needs. SDA funding is separate from the support services you can receive through the NDIS, and is only for housing. You can’t use SDA funding to pay for things like rent, utilities, discretionary items, or holidays.

Under the NDIS, participants can access both Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding. These two support streams aren’t mutually exclusive, and you may be eligible for both types of supports simultaneously.

Need SIL NDIS in Geelong? Soteria has a wide range of SIL quality options that can be individualised to meet your unique needs. To find NDIS SIL services in Geelong, please get in touch with our customer support team. We’re here to help.
