REMINDER: Supported Independent Living (SIL) Quotation Tool Information Session – Ultimo | Monday 4th September

The NSW Sydney Provider Engagement team welcome the opportunity to invite you to NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL) Quotation Tool Information Session.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is assistance with and/or supervising tasks of daily life to develop the skills of individuals to live as autonomously as possible. All Supported Independent Living (SIL) providers are required to provide a quote for participants living in Supported Independent Living accommodation. A SIL quote is required for first plans, reviews and scheduled reviews. The SIL pack is available from NDIS website.

The SIL pack and quoting tool allows planners to process provider quotes more efficiently and gives planners greater information to make better informed decisions. Using this template will ensure a more efficient and nationally consistent process, and is intended to result in provider quotes being assessed in a timely and responsive manner.

This session will cover:

  • An overview framework for Supported Independent Living
