Enhancing the lifestyle, independence & ambitions of people with disability

Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living

Live with independence 

Help Disability Care offers Supported Independent Living and Short-Term Accommodation support options to help people with disability live more independently.

Supported independent living (SIL)

HELP’s accommodation support options give people with disability a supported way to:

  • Discover interests
  • Build friendships 
  • Participate in weekend social activities
  • Undertake daily living tasks

Supported Independent Living is a service that is funded from your NDIS plan that can be provided to people with disability. HELP offers 24/7, around the clock care via our SIL services including support worker sleepover shifts, and drop-in supports.  

Our goal is to create a safe space for participants to experience life independently.

Short-term accommodation (STA)

HELP’s Cottage by the sea

HELP’s short-term accommodation site is our cottage by the sea in Scarborough. The Scarborough Cottage is a stone’s throw away from the picturesque bay, making this idyllic location the perfect place to dip your toes into the sea during an afternoon stroll, or throw in a line at some excellent fishing spots. Guests have the option to book anything from an overnight stay to a week-long holiday and are encouraged to chat to the team to organise activities that suit their interests. 

HELP Holidays 

HELP can also provide supports for you to venture out on your own holiday or adventure. We can support you to travel to and from your chosen destination, take part in events or activities that spark your interest as well as support you to enjoy meals out or indulge in some takeaway during your getaway. We support you 24/7 during your holiday and can work with you to provide support throughout your ideal holiday itinerary.
