Supported Independent Living (SIL)

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living is support provided to you in your home (whether you rent or own your home) or in a home owned or run by Alkira (Specialist Disability Accommodation). The support can be either individualised, shared with others, or a combination of the two depending on your circumstances.


Our highly skilled staff support you to live as independently as possible and assist with things like:

  • Developing skills so that you can be as independent as possible
  • Preparing meals
  • Shopping
  • Gardening
  • General household tasks
  • Personal care
  • Getting out and about in the community
  • Developing and maintaining friendships and family connections.
  • Accessing social and recreational activities.
  • Managing accommodation and tenancy obligations.
  • Managing your health
  • Managing your money
  • Using public transport

Who can access SIL?

Anyone with an intellectual disability between the ages 18 and 65 can access our SIL services. SIL in an Alkira house is subject to availability, suitability and appropriate NDIS funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).
