Supported Independent Living
Richmond Futures’ Supported Independent Living (SIL) program creates homelike environments where people with NDIS plans are supported to maintain their wellbeing, achieve their personal goals, build their capacity and be as independent as possible.
Our SIL homes provide support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We work with you to identify the supports and services you require as part of the SIL package. These may include:
- Daily living supports;
- Medication support;
- Access to social and recreational activities;
- Access to health and welfare services; and
- Access to other services and information (e.g. employment, education).
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.
Our properties and their operation have been designed and reviewed by participants and staff to ensure our SIL program provides you with the best possible experience, and that we meet your needs and expectations.
