Supported independent living allows you to live independently but with the guidance and support of an expert, such as NDIS service provider, Beacon Support. Supported independent living assistants can help you learn how to manage a household, organise your finances and even help you secure employment.

When moving out on your own, or to a group home environment, your NDIS supported independent living expert will help you with the following strategies.

Determine Your Budget

Just like everyone starting off, it is important to determine your living budget. The easiest way to start is to determine your monthly income and your predicted expenses. Creating a simple chart of the money coming in and money going out is a good way to get started.

When creating your budget you want to break-even or have more money coming in than going out. Working with your supported independent living expert, you can create a balanced budget that is realistic to your situation. It is always important to consider medical costs, transportation to and from medical appointments as well as any funding, such as NDIS subsidies, you may be receiving to help pay for your care and support.
