Individualised Living Options (ILO) is a package of supports that lets you choose where and how you live, in the way that best suits your needs and wants.

What are Individualised Living Options? 

Individualised Living Options is a NDIS support that offers lots of choices for people with disability. ILO helps you to live in a home of your choice, with support, and with the option to live with others you choose.  

It provides a flexible and tailored package of support in the home of your choice.

About our ILO services 

If your home and living goals include exploring an individualised living option, then ILO might be right for you! At Life Without Barriers, our ILO services includes working with you, your family, and friends to explore and design different options for how you live, where you live, and who you live with. 

This can mean sharing your home with housemates, living in the home of a host family, or on your own with a variety of individualised supports.

What are the benefits of Individualised Living Options?

ILO provides you with greater freedom by considering a broad range of living options.  

For example, you might opt for an apartment on your own in the city with in- home support, while someone else might love the idea of a house in the suburbs with friends and shared supports. 

What is the difference between Individualised Living Options and Supported Independent Living? 

While ILO and Supported Independent Living (SIL) are both about providing greater independence for people living with disability, the main difference is that: 

  • SIL generally applies to people with disability living in shared accommodation and would typically be considered the better option if you require higher levels of care 

  • ILO participants would tend to require care on a more occasional basis 

Whether SIL or ILO is right for you depends on your circumstances. We can help explore which option might be right for you 

Which categories in my NDIS plan can i use for Individualised Living Options?

ILO is funded under Core Supports – Assistance with Daily Living in your NDIS plan, and stated as a separate line item. 

The NDIS does not fund the cost of the property itself, rent, board, transport, and other day-to-day expenses such as food and activities.
