Social Hosuing and Supported Independent Living (SIL)
People who live in Social Housing and receive Supported Independent Living supports will have gone through the Victorian Housing Register and potentially priority disability access and will have a provider of SIL on board to provide around the clock care in at least a 2-bedroom unit/apartment/house. This is so that the provider has a room from which they are able to administer overnight supports. In some rare cases, a person may live in Social Housing with an active overnight model of support, and therefore only require their own bedroom.
What this looks like: You will have an agreement between the you, the housing provider and the support provider about the arrangement which sets out how supports are delivered in the home.
This model of Home and Living support takes a long time to set up, and the NDIS only funds SIL for people to live alone very rarely, so people who receive this support to live alone will have comprehensive reporting from Allied Health providers about their need to live alone with support.
In some cases, you may share a Social Housing property with another NDIS Participant, these dwellings are very hard to come by, and so this will be a model that takes a long time, possibly even years to set up.
