People with disabilities have the right to live independently and be a part of their communities. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) makes it possible for people with disabilities to achieve their independent living goals with the help of Supported Independent Living (SIL)funding. It is a support designed to assist NDIS participants who need a significant level of assistance to be able to live on their own. Using SIL funding, eligible participants can access the help of support staff to take care of their everyday tasks including personal care, meal preparation, medication management, household chores, and much more. This enables the participants to be able to move into a home of their own and be truly independent without relying too much on their friends and family.

Person-centred support is one of the core principles of the NDIS. Each participant is unique and their disability support needs could be vastly different. Therefore, it is important to include support and services that best aligns with the NDIS goals and individual disability needs of each participant in their SIL support plan. Several participants who are recipients of SIL funding may also receive funding for a support coordinator. The support coordinators will ensure that the right mix of supports is available in a participant’s plan as part of delivering person-centred support. SIL service providers can utilize the roster of care document to describe the services they plan to provide to a participant to meet the specific goals and support requirements of that participant. The NDIA utilizes this information to obtain an understanding of the type of assistance a Supported Independent Living (SIL) participant may receive during a typical week. Person-centred care will help the participants to receive maximum benefits from the NDIS and swiftly achieve their goals.

Aastha Community Services 
understands the importance of person-centred care when it comes to Supported Independent Living. Since SIL supports are mostly delivered in shared living arrangements, a person-centred approach is important in paying attention to the individual needs of each participant. We have a team of trained support staff who can provide you with round-the-clock SIL assistance to help you achieve your home and living goals. Contact us today to know more.

Support Coordination is intended to assist the participant in using their NDIS plan to its fullest potential by helping them understand the NDIS and various supports, services and budget categories. Registered NDIS service providers like Aastha Community Services(ACS) can provide you with assistance from experienced Support Coordinators who can help you navigate the NDIS with ease.

  • Helping you find service providers and setting up service agreements with them.
  • Building your confidence and capability to manage your plan on your own.

Accessing Support Coordination in Your NDIS plan.

Support Coordination funding will be included in your capacity building budget if it is found to be ‘reasonable and necessary to pursue your NDIS goals. Depending on your individual disability needs, there are three levels of support coordination that can be included in your NDIS plan. They are Support Connection, Support Coordination and Specialist Support Coordination. Unless a certain level of Support Coordination funding is mentioned in your NDIS plan, you are free to choose the level according to your needs. You can reach out to registered NDIS service providers like Aastha Community Services(ACS) to clear your queries and to find out whether you are eligible for Support Coordination or not.
