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.
ILO design features include:
- individual focussed supports
- staged implementation
- a primary support approach
- supplementary support
These tailored and flexible packages are closely monitored.
The NDIA will maintain current ILO arrangements for participants as they transition into the NDIS. Interim funding arrangements will be in place for 6-9 months, until longer term policy, pricing and practice is confirmed.
ILO existing before the participant joined the NDIS will be maintained based on planning guidelines where the exact amount of funding input into a plan is reasonable and necessary.
A specific Service Delivery contact is available to support participants with current or previous ILOs as these interim arrangements are introduced.
