Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) are different types of disability accommodation funding options.

SDA funding covers specialist housing solutions for those with high support needs or extreme functional impairment. SDA homes contain features that allow their residents to live more independently and safely. Living in Specialist Disability Accommodation may give you eligibility for SIL support.

SIL also provides you with support to live independently through person-to-person support services. You can receive SIL support if you are living alone or with others in a shared home. Funding is given individually to each person according to their need and is categorised into three levels of support.

SIL is referred to as Assistance with Daily Living (ADL) in the NDIS Core support budget. During your NDIS planning meeting, your goals, support needs and independence will be assessed to help indicate what kind of services will be the best for you.
