Feel at home with Supported Independent Living

Whether you are looking to live independently or in a shared arrangement, require round the clock support or just want someone to drop in throughout the day, Impact Care can help. We are committed to working with you to ensure that your individual life goals become a reality.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) offers support with or without supervision of everyday tasks to individuals with disabilities. Through the development of practical and social skills, residents can live autonomously and get involved with their community.

Impact Care services the greater Western Sydney Region and Hunter Region providing modern 3-5 bedroom homes with Disability Key Workers on hand 24/7 for NDIS participants with Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding. If you’re aged 18 or over, living with a disability and looking to change your housing arrangements, we’d love to talk to you about how we can help.

Houses for people with disability in NSW

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability, which affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. Impact draws on its 15 years’ experience in OoHC to provide Supported Independent Living and other services to young adults in the Hunter and Western Sydney areas. Further expansion is planned for 2018.

 

We offer a range of service models, ranging from units to purpose modified houses and group homes with 24-hour support.

 

Services are provided to people living in specialised support models who require 24-hour assistance. More specifically, Impact runs specialised support models for people on the autism spectrum and people living with ongoing mental health issues.

Impact's pricing is based on the current NDIS Price Guide.
