Access to our Residential Services comes via a referral from a Needs Assessment Service Coordination (NASC) agency which will carry out a Needs Assessment to determine the level of support you require.
Residential support means that a person with a developmental or physical disability has access to support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Your choice of living arrangement is worked out with you and your family/whānau.
We will spend time together getting to know each other and will create an Individual Support Plan that identifies the support you need, your goals and aspirations, and how we will work together to achieve these.
Supported Independent Living
SILC provides personalised supports developed in partnership with you to support you to achieve your life goals and aspirations.
Every partnership is as individual as you are – we work together to develop a plan to support you to live the life you want.
Supported Living Services
The Ministry of Health purchases Supported Living Services from organisations such as SILC for people who are eligible for Ministry-funded Disability Support Services and have been referred by a contracted Needs Assessment Service Coordination (NASC) agency.
The services are provided to people 17 years or older with a disability, living in their own home, to enable them to develop relevant skills, to develop and access community resources, and to actively participate in their community.
Enhanced Individualised Funding (EIF)
Enhanced Individualised Funding is part of the Ministry of Health’s ‘New Model for Supporting Disabled People’ which offers more flexibility for people with disabilities in their choice and control of disability supports.
A NASC will help you develop a plan based on your life goals and work through an assessment process to establish the amount of funding available to support those goals. SILC can then work with you to manage this.
ACC Living My Life
ACC Living My Life is a disability support service delivered by a multidisciplinary team in the community, including organisations such as SILC, to ACC clients who have a long-term disability because of an injury.
The service provides personalised supports to reduce barriers to participation, increase independence and ensure meaningful engagement and participation in the local community.
