Supported Independent Living

What We Do

My Goal Australia is an industry leader and specialises in providing high quality Supported Independent Living (SIL) for participants of the NDIS in Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Maitland And Cessnock areas of the Hunter Valley.

We specialise in delivering SIL to people with complex behavioural needs with support arrangements at care ratios of 2:1, 1:1 and 1:2.

Our primary goal other than to provide the highest quality of support is to support the individual to reduce their level of support requirements from 2:1 through to 1:2 in a well-supported and planned approach. We see this reduction in support level imperative for the sustainability of the scheme and to allow for other participants to access the reasonable and necessary support they need.

There’s an ongoing need to provide a SIL program. It’s vital for people with a disability to have choice. There are many local community-based organisations providing similar services, but each offers a different approach and unique culture, providing choice and control to the participants.

Realistically neither disability service providers or family and friends alone are able to meet all the needs of a person with disability

Service Delivery

Supported Independent Living is our core business focus. To deliver this service to a high standard and be an industry leader we place a strong focus on collaborative approaches [our model] and person-centred approaches which involve high levels of management and strong relationships.

It requires input and buy-in from families, friends and a range of service providers. This means a higher level of facilitation and oversight. But it’s the best way to ensure our participants’ outcomes/ goals are supported.

Our participants live in 24-hour care, provided onsite by our dedicated, qualified and caring staff. We are dedicated to supporting and empowering participants to live in a home-like environment which is personalised and meets their needs and desires.
