Supported Independent Living
Impact offers Supported Independent Living (SIL) to support individuals with permanent and significant disabilities. Our SIL programs provide assistance to participants in their daily activities, promoting independence and community participation. The service offers various accommodation options, including shared living arrangements or group homes, where trained support staff help participants with tasks they may require aid with. SIL aims to empower individuals with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives in a supported and inclusive environment.
Assistance with Social and Community Participation, a funded support category in NDIS plans, helps participants engage in social and recreational activities. It covers support for activities in centers or the community, aligned with the participant's goals. Examples include hiring a Disability Support Worker for attending events like music concerts or joining social groups and personal development courses. Funding applies to both centre-based and community-based activities.
