What is ILO?
Individual Living Options (ILO) is a person-centred approach within the NDIS, allowing participants to design and create their unique living arrangements tailored to their needs, preferences and goals. It provides greater flexibility and choice in housing options, support services and community participation.
The Benefits of ILO
Participants have the freedom to choose their living arrangements, which may include living independently, sharing a residence with friends or support workers, or accessing community-based accommodations. ILO empowers individuals to make decisions about their living situations, fostering a sense of ownership and independence in their daily lives. By allowing individuals to select housing options in their preferred communities, home and living NDIS services promote community integration, participation in local activities and the development of social connections. ILO participants can build essential life skills, such as budgeting, meal preparation and housekeeping, promoting personal growth and self-sufficiency.
How Does ILO Work?
An assessment is conducted to understand the participant's support needs, preferences, and goals. Based on the assessment, the NDIS allocates a budget that covers housing, support staff, and any necessary modifications or assistive technology. Participants select a NDIS provider like Amazing Grace Community Services, which specialises in ILO support. Participants explore housing options that align with their preferences and receive support to make informed choices. Ongoing support coordination ensures that the participant's goals and needs are being met as they transition to their chosen living arrangement.
