Supported Independent Living

Richmond Futures’ Supported Independent Living (SIL) creates a home environment where people with NDIS plans are supported to maintain their wellbeing, achieve their personal goals, build their capacity and be as independent as possible.

We work with you to identify the supports and services you require as part of the SIL package.

We have a variety of SIL properties across the state including share homes and individual units, each with their own unique features designed to meet a wide variety of needs.

We want to provide you with the best possible experience and meet your needs and expectations.

Exceptionally Complex Support Needs (ECSN) Program

What is the Exceptionally Complex Support Needs program? The Exceptionally Complex Support Needs (ECSN) program is a national initiative aimed at strengthening coordinated responses for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants (aged 18 years and over) with complex needs who are experiencing crisis, or at risk of entering a crisis situation. Richmond Futures is the ECSN program provider for Tasmania How can you get involved? Service providers, including support coordinators and mainstream and community services can get involved with the ECSN program by:

  • participating in Richmond Futures led community and sector development activities, including knowledge exchange opportunities, to remove barriers and improve outcomes for Participants with complex support needs
  • participating in activities to enable sharing and development of practice knowledge with the aim of building systemic capability across the community and mainstream sector
  • assisting in meeting the crisis response support needs of participants after hours by providing funded accommodation and personal supports to address the immediate crisis

Richmond Futures will work with approved referrers of the ECSN program to establish a crisis response after hours for NDIS participants. Crisis referrals may occur where an NDIS participant’s disability related supports suddenly become ineffective, inadequate or absent and where the participant or their existing support coordinator is unable to enact short term arrangements or in-house supports that exist in their NDIS Plan What is an approved referrer? Approved referrers are State Government nominated services including health, justice and emergency services (such as police and ambulance). Richmond Futures will work with the sector to identify need, build capability and facilitate knowledge sharing. You can get in touch with us to find out more by phoning (03) 6169 1188 or use the contact us link on this website.
