Housing Options Online Learning Package – Supported independent living (SIL)

This is chapter 9 of our free self-paced learning package about housing options for people with disability.

In this chapter you can learn about supported independent living (SIL). SIL is one way to pay for the people who support you. SIL can be delivered in a range of NDIS housing models. You have the most control when your housing and support are provided by separate organisations.
