SILC is a charity and a Co-operative. It is governed by a Board of parents who are carers for their children with disabilities. The Board chooses to bring their knowledge and lived experience to create a new type of housing model that gives families choice and control over who their children live with, where they live and the staff that work in the home. The SILC model assumes that families want to stay connected to their sons and daughters and be actively involved in their lives and the types of activities, employment and ongoing supports they need to flourish.

SILC’s main focus is to provide a hub of education, community connection and practical resources that meet the needs of each family. We hold monthly information sessions for families in Sydney on all topics related to housing and disability. We can assist our members to:

  • Understand what’s possible with NDIS & housing
  • Set up a family-governed housing model
  • Have a say about where the home is located and the staffing
  • Broker solutions to set up the home: legal, financial etc
