Navigating NDIS Supported Independent Living in Sydney: The Allara Approach

Living life to the fullest is everyone’s aspiration, and for individuals with disabilities, it’s no different. With the support of initiatives like the NDIS and organisations like ours – Allara Support Services, living independently becomes a reality through supported independent living (SIL).  

As one of the leading SIL providers in Sydney, we want to ensure that our participants have access to a range of supported independent living options across Sydney. We are dedicated to empowering our participants to enhance their independence, pursue their dreams and celebrate their unique diversity. 

Let’s look at what SIL is all about and how Allara plays a part.

What Is The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The NDIS is a government initiative that provides support and services to people with disabilities under the age of 65 years old. Through the NDIS, eligible individuals can receive funding to help them access the services and support so they can live as independently as possible. 

The NDIS is really about giving participants more choice and greater control over the kind of support they receive and taking into account their individual needs, preferences and goals.

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)? 

SIL is more than just assistance, it’s a pathway to independence and true empowerment. Through organisations like Allara, the government offers financial assistance to participants so they can live as independently as possible in their own homes or with other people. 

Through SIL, participants receive the support they need to tick off daily tasks and participate in the activities they love. Whether it’s cooking a meal, socialising with friends or pursuing personal goals, SIL ensures that every participant has the opportunity to live life to the fullest. 

What is the Difference Between Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and SIL? 

SDA and SIL both aim to support NDIS participants, but they are distinctly different things.

SDA refers to the housing itself, which has been specifically designed or modified to meet the needs of participants. 

Modifications or design features might include wheelchair accessibility ramps and handles or specialised equipment for using the bathroom or cooking in the kitchen. 

SIL, on the other hand, is about fostering independence through support services. This can be in the participants own home where the focus is on helping participants to live independently with the assistance they need. 

Allara Support Services offers both SIL accommodation and SDA (in partnership with reputable SDA providers) around Sydney. We are committed to finding our participants the right type of NDIS accommodation that suits their needs, lifestyle and goals.

How Allara Helps in Finding the Right SIL Accommodation for Each NDIS Participant

At Allara Support Services, we understand that finding the right SIL accommodation isn’t just about the physical space, it’s about finding a place where you feel happy, comfortable and at home. 

That’s why we take the time to get to know you before helping you find the home that suits you best. After getting to know you better and helping you with all the paperwork, we guide you through our selection of SIL vacancies across Sydney to help you find the one you like best.

However, finding a good home is only part of it. The other part is finding the right team of carers to ensure your needs are met and that you’re happy. It’s really about ensuring that you find the right match!
