Where are the shared houses located?
We have a number of supported independent living (SILs) accommodation sites across Brisbane, Redland Bay and the Sunshine Coast. If you are seeking a SIL arrangement, please contact us (link to contact us page) for more information and to discuss your queries.
How much does supported independent living cost?
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) provides funding for the support provided to participants in their home. The participant is required to pay the associated living expenses. These living expenses vary and can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual.
