    •  How does SIL fit in the suite of NDIS “home and living” supports?
    •  Who is likely to be eligible for SIL?
    •  Which properties are suitable for SIL?
    •  How is SIL funded?

Success with SIL Funding Submissions: DSC's Current Guidance

Does working with SIL funding ever make you question your career choices? You’re not alone. With all the policy shifts and changing whims at the NDIA, writing a successful SIL funding submission has never been more frustrating.

In this workshop, we will cut through the noise to detail the current SIL submission process. We will highlight recent changes and equip you with the intel to write and implement a RoC that rocks (our training is better than our puns, we promise). 

We will cover:
    • New NDIS Home & Living funding policy and implications for SIL providers
    • Writing outcomes that showcase your service and get results

Implementing SIL Support Budgets

Success, your RoC was approved as submitted! Just kidding, chances are you received much less than you need and you now have to figure out how to make this work for both your organisation and the people you are supporting. 

This workshop explores how to make the best of a SIL funding outcome, even when it’s not what you hoped for, including:
   • Reverse engineering the Roster of Care to match the service booking
   • Developing and claiming Program of Supports
   • Getting creative when the funding didn’t match expectations
   • Communicating the outcome with stakeholders. 
   • Tracking and claiming irregular supports
   • What to do if prolonged vacancies, mismatched ratios or unconsidered variable income have the finance team rocking in the corner during board meetings
