6 ways to choose the right SIL provider


Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of support offered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia. The NDIS is a government-funded program that provides funding and support to eligible individuals with disabilities to help them live an independent and fulfilling life.

SIL is a type of support that is designed to help people with disabilities live in their own homes or in other independent living arrangements. This support may include assistance with daily living activities such as personal care, household tasks, and meal preparation. It may also include help with accessing the community, maintaining a safe and secure living environment, and managing finances. The level of support provided will vary depending on the individual’s needs and goals.

The goal of SIL under the NDIS is to promote independence, choice, and control for people with disabilities. It aims to provide people with the necessary support to live as independently as possible, while still ensuring their safety and well-being.

Choosing a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Supports in the Community (SIL) provider involves the following steps:

  1. Assess your needs: Determine the support services you need and what you hope to achieve through the NDIS SIL program.
  2. Research providers: Look for NDIS SIL providers in your area and check their credentials, experience, and reputation.
  3. Check for eligibility: Make sure you are eligible for the NDIS SIL program and that the provider you are considering is approved by the NDIS.
  4. Compare services and costs: Evaluate the services offered by different providers and compare their costs to ensure you are getting value for money.
  5. Meet with providers: Schedule appointments to meet with the providers you are considering and ask questions to gain a better understanding of their services and approach.

Choose the right provider: Based on your research, choose the provider that best meets your needs and budget.


It is recommended to seek advice from an NDIS planner or support coordinator if you need assistance in making a decision.
