Supported Independent Living

Are you looking for a place to call home? You may want to consider starting your journey with Fairhaven - Brisbane’s most trusted supported independent living (SIL) expert.

As a leading provider of SIL services, Fairhaven helps guide people with disability to live independently and happily in a shared environment with residents who share similar interests and support needs.

What is Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is when people with disabilities receive support, usually 24/7, to help each person live as independently as possible. This can sometimes be a group of people sharing a home together, or one person receiving support in their own home.

What support is available in a SIL home?

Support is usually available 24/7 and can include:

  • Help to manage money and household budgeting

  • Assistance with cooking

  • Assistance with cleaning and laundry

  • Help to catch public transport to visit friends and family

  • Personal care such as showering and dressing

  • Support with grocery shopping

  • Assistance with daily skills training

  • Promote participation in household and community activities

What levels of support does SIL provide?

Everyone with mental illness and disabilities is unique and has therefore has different support requirements. The NDIS has outlined three levels of support that SIL is funded:

  • deaf-icon

    Lower needs – not usually 24/7. Includes supervision of living arrangements.

  • cane-icon

  • wheelchair-icon
