Providing flexible support options for people with a disability and their families and carers

Supported Independent Living Services

Supported Independent Living (SIL) supports people with a disability to live happy, healthy and connected lives in the accommodation setting that best meets your needs. This service aims to widen your current support network of family, friends, volunteers and significant others, to increase independence and maintain a safe and meaningful life.

Our dedicated SIL employees provides assistance with personal tasks, with a focus on developing your skills so you can live as independently as possible.

We take a person-centred approach that supports an individual to manage a household, pay their bills, participate in the community and attend health care and employment needs.

Our SIL services can be delivered to people in a variety of housing models, including:

  • Housing sourced through the Department of Housing or other social housing entities
  • Private rentals
  • Privately owned houses
  • Shared or group accommodation
  • Specialist Disability Accommodation residences owned by Mercy Community

We tailor our SIL services to meet the level of support needs identified in your NDIS Plan.
