Supported independent living is one type of support to assist you in living in your home. It includes help or supervision with daily tasks, like personal care or cooking meals. It enables you to live as independently as possible while building your skills. Supported independent living is for people with higher support needs who always require some level of help at home. Supported independent living is best suited to people with a disability who have higher support needs. This means you need significant daily help, 7 days a week. This includes overnight support. You can get supported independent living if you live with other NDIS participants. You can also get supported independent living if you live on your own. Still, different home and living supports might suit you better.

Specialist disability accommodation (SDA) is a range of housing designed for people with extreme functional impairment or high support needs. 

SDA dwellings have accessible features to help residents live more independently and allow other supports to be delivered better or more safely.

Participants eligible for SDA:

  • Have an extreme functional impairment or very high support needs

  • Meet the specialist disability accommodation needs requirement and the NDIS funding criteria

More information about SDA and eligibility is in the SDA Operational Guideline.


Core Supports are recognised by the NDIS that enable an individual to complete activities of daily living. Although all NDIS Participants' plans relate to their goals, we want to tailor the support to meet an individual's current disability-related needs. Core Supports are equally focused on working towards and achieving personal goals and objectives such as Community Participation.

The NDIS can fund you to find accommodation for up to 90 days. Known as medium-term accommodation. This allows you somewhere to live if you can't move into your long-term home because your disability supports aren't ready. To be eligible, you must have a home you'll move into and need somewhere else to live in the medium term. 


Short Term Accommodation, including respite, is funded for support and accommodation. The funding provides you a short time away from your usual home. It covers the cost of your care in another place for up to 14 days. You might have a short stay with other people or by yourself. It’s often funded when your usual carers aren’t available or for you to try new things.
