What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported independent living (SIL) is for people with a disability who want to live more independently but still need access to support services. Under SIL you can either live in your own accommodation or live in a shared home with others and receive assistance with day-to-day tasks and other activities. Support for SIL is provided by care workers and is very flexible, ranging from a couple hours in a day to 24/7 support.
