Workshop

Martia Walker will share information about how the NDIS is implementing Individual Living Options (ILO) that 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
