Your Comprehensive Guide


Understanding how to apply for and effectively utilise Individualised Living Options (ILO) funding under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can significantly impact the quality of life for individuals seeking greater independence and choice in their living arrangements. If you’re in Australia and looking to explore this avenue, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know:


Understanding Individualised Living Options (ILO) Funding


Individualised Living Options (ILO) funding is a specialised funding option available through the NDIS, aimed at providing individuals with disabilities greater control and flexibility in their housing and accommodation arrangements. It enables participants to tailor their living situations to suit their unique needs, preferences, and goals, promoting independence and community inclusion.


How to Apply for and Utilise Individualised Living Options (ILO) Funding


When it comes to applying for and utilising ILO funding effectively, there are several key steps to consider:

  1. Assessment and Planning: The first step is to undergo an assessment with the NDIS to determine your eligibility for ILO funding. Once approved, you’ll work with your NDIS planner or coordinator to develop a personalised plan that outlines your goals, preferences, and support needs related to housing and accommodation.
  2. Identifying Suitable Options: With your plan in hand, you can begin exploring various living options that align with your preferences and goals. This may include living independently with support, shared living arrangements, supported accommodation, or other innovative housing models.
  3. Engaging Providers: Once you’ve identified suitable options, it’s essential to engage with ILO providers, support coordinators, and other relevant stakeholders to discuss your needs and preferences. They can help you navigate the process, explore available resources, and coordinate supports to facilitate your transition to your chosen living arrangement.
  4. Developing Individualised Support Plans: Work closely with your support coordinator and ILO provider to develop individualised support plans that address your specific needs and goals. This may involve arranging for personal care support, assistance with daily living tasks, access to community activities, and other necessary supports to help you thrive in your new living environment.  The ILO provider is typically involved with organising a “host” that you might live with. 
  5. Regular Reviews and Adjustments: Keep in mind that your housing and support needs may evolve over time. It’s essential to regularly review your support plans, communicate any changes or concerns with your support team, and adjust as needed to ensure your ongoing safety, well-being, and satisfaction with your living arrangements.
