Supported Independent Living

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a NDIS funded support that provides help and/ or supervision of daily tasks to help you live as independently as possible.

Forsight is registered SIL provider, we provide SIL in our homes 24 hours a day, including night support. Our group homes support 4 to 5 residents, and we are very committed ensuring that you are partnered with other residents who are a great social match for you.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)?

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is housing designed for people with very high support needs, who require a purpose-built home to meet those needs. This might include wider doorways or built-in hoists. SDA funding is for the building and is not for in home care or person to person supports.

SIL and SDA are funded independently of each other. While all Forsight homes require you to have SIL funding, not all Forsight homes require SDA funding.

Our Homes

Our homes are managed by teams of professional staff trained in Active Support – where, depending on their needs, we do things with our clients, not for them.

As required, homes are staffed up to 24 hours, 7 days, and our team will provide every client with the necessary supports for:

Cooking

Cleaning

Laundry

Personal Care

Transportation to day programs / employment / appointments

SIL funding and enquiries

SIL is best suited for participants who have high support needs and require a significant amount of assistance throughout the day. If you believe that SIL is the most appropriate support for you, you should discuss this with your Local Area Coordinator, Support Coordinator or Recovery coach. They can help you collate the supporting evidence needed for a Home and Living Assessment.

We would be happy to discuss our current vacancies with you, no matter where you are in your journey to find your forever home.
