Supporting our Community

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a shared living experience for people with disability who have SIL funding in their NDIS plan. Supports are often 24/7, nurturing personal growth in a safe and supportive environment with the goal to build your independence at home and connect you with your local community.

Our LINC team can help you find a home to call your own. Here’s what you need to know about our Supported Independent Living (SIL).

Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living is funded under Core Supports – Assistance with Daily Life in your NDIS plan. The NDIS does not fund the cost of rent, board, transport, and other day-to-day expenses such as food and activities.

Please note: We bill in line with the NDIS Price Guide, which generally increases annually.

Engaging Activities:

We offer an extensive range of on-site and community-based activities designed to foster personal development, social connections, and a sense of belonging. From arts and crafts to outdoor excursions, our clients have ample opportunities to explore their interests and passions.

24/7 Support:

Our team is available around the clock to ensure our clients feel safe, secure, and supported at all times. Our priority is ensuring a safe and comfortable experience for every person we support, so both guests and their families enjoy a well-earned short break.

Short Term Accommodation (Respite)

What is Short-Term Accommodation (STA)?

STA is a way of providing respite care that allows both you and your carer to have a break or a change of scenery.

What are the benefits of STA?

A short stay away from home can help you:

  • make new friends and meet new people
  • try new activities
  • enjoy a change of scenery
  • step outside your comfort zone
  • De-stress and recharge
  • increase independence


We understand that the need for short-term accommodation (STA) can arise suddenly and for a range of reasons. That’s why we offer quality, short-term Respite accommodation in a comfortable and relaxed homely environment where your loved ones or participants will be well looked after.

Supports Coordination for NDIS Plans

Our support coordinators will help you understand your NDIS plan and how to access the services you want, and reach the goals you want to achieve while enabling you to exercise choice and control.

Support coordination helps link you to the services in your area, including specialist services, community, and government services, as well as mainstream supports.

Our support coordinators will also oversee your plan budget and make sure that all services are fair and accessing your plan funds appropriately. Your support coordinator will ensure quotes, service agreements, and service bookings are completed fairly and correctly.

We can assist you in planning ahead to prepare for your plan review. They can also support you to obtain a plan review if needed and help you get the most out of your NDIS plan funds.

Psychosocial Recovery Coaching

Recovery coaches will provide support to people with psychosocial disability to increase their independence, social participation, and economic participation. You will be assisted to take more control of your life and to better manage complex challenges of day to day living.

Through recovery-enabling relationships and skilled coaching, you will be supported to build capacity, including strengths and resilience. Recovery coaches will work collaboratively with you, your families, carers, and other services to design, plan, implement and review a recovery plan.

Your recovery coach will be by your side as you progress towards your goals

If you have been funded for psychosocial recovery coaching, get in touch now to arrange a personal meeting with our coach.
