Individual Living Options (ILO) are living arrangements that focus on the individual. They include living alone, co-residency, host arrangements and living together options. They are an alternative to group home services.
Some people living in ILO models have experienced significant disruption to their living situation as they move to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has continued existing arrangements for participants as they transition into the NDIS. Funding arrangements will be in place until longer term policy, pricing and practice is confirmed, which is currently underway.
ILO that were in place before the participant joined the NDIS are maintained based on planning guidelines where the exact amount of funding is ‘reasonable and necessary’.
A specific Service Delivery contact is available to support participants with current or previous ILO as transition arrangements are rolled out.
