SIL is one of many support options clients of Choices & Rights as NDIS participants can receive. When considering if SIL is the best option for you, the following are considered:

  • Your goals for your potential home and living arrangements, and the support required for daily tasks to assist you in living as independently as possible.
  • Whether alternative supports may be a better option.
  • Do you have significant support needs that require person-to-person supports, and what supports do you already receive.
  • Whether the NDIA decides the support meets the reasonable and necessary criteria for SIL funding.
