We’re growing our Supported Independent Living program

December 15, 2020

CatholicCare Disability Futures is expanding its work within the Supported Independent Living (SIL) environment.

Supported Independent Living is the name of the NDIS funding that provides supports to people with disability to help them live as independently as possible, within their chosen community. It is also sometimes referred to as supported accommodation, as participants share common areas and tasks such as cooking, cleaning and social interaction, as well as having their own personal room.

SIL funding allows you to be supported by a team of trained carers who understand your goals and support you to develop independence in achieving these, as well as assisting you in your personal care requirements. This extends to supports that may be required overnight as well as transport and social outings.

Already providing SIL in a home in Lindfield, CatholicCare will be providing services to a new group of people with a disability moving into Manly House early 2021 – a new Specialist Disability Accommodation apartment block located in North Manly, with contemporary features and many mod cons!

If you would like more information on SIL and how it works, or would like us to provide you with SIL services where you currently reside, please call (02) 9488 2500 and ask for Desley McAuliffe or email disabilityfutures@catholiccaredbb.org.au.
