What is Individualised Living Options (ILO)?

An individualised living option (ILO NDIS) is a support system designed to help you live the way that suits you. It is funding to help you choose where you live, who you live with and how you want to be supported.


First, we provide funding to design your support and then to implement and maintain your support.

Build your Independence

This support system is designed to give you a sense of home and belonging and to build independence. You’ll decide who you live with, and how they, and other supports including family, friends and other networks, support you.


It can include things like personal care, support to build your skills, or support with household tasks like cooking, cleaning or doing your washing.

Informal support like family, friends and other networks can complement your paid support. Individualised living option supports are developed by you, with assistance if you need it. 

Individualised living option (ILO NDIS) support systems don’t include support for activities outside your home, such as work, study, playing sports or going out. If you need support for these activities, we’ll include it in other parts of your plan. You may also need separate support for other home and living supports like home modifications.
