NDIS Individualised Living Options (ILO) are flexible support packages that are customisable to you and your unique needs. Under an ILO funding, you’ve got the freedom to choose how and where you want to live, and the types of assistance you need daily.
Designed to create a sense of belonging and to build independence, Aspire Hub’s ILO services are tailored to the preference and goals of a person with a disability.

What is an ILO?
An ILO arrangement allows you to access the support you need for any living arrangement in the house of your choosing. While each arrangement is unique, ILO can include things like personal care, assistance in developing your skills, or support with household tasks like cooking and shopping.
It’s important to remember that ILO is a package of supports rather than the type of home you live in. Funding for ILO cannot be used for expenses like your rent or mortgage. If you’re wanting to learn about the individualised living option supports that we offer, click here.
Is ILO right for me?
While ILO arrangements are determined on case-by-case basis, it’s worth exploring if:
- you’re 18 or over
- you require at least 6 hours of daily help at home
- you don’t need daily registered nursing care or frequent support overnight
- you’re ready to explore alternative options for your home and living needs.
If you think ILO might not be the right fit for you, contact us to explore other NDIS Plan options.
Who can I live with?
With ILO, you can choose anyone you want to live with. You can live with friends or housemates, or you can live by yourself. Here are just a few of the many options:
You can live with other people who will take care of you, help you, and keep you company. Your roommates may receive a payment or have their rent paid for them.
You might like to live in a place where you have a small group of paid mentors who help you out. A mentor can spend a long time helping someone in direct and indirect ways.
You might want to live alone or with other people and get help from your family and friends as well as drop-in help.
No matter who you choose to live with, it’s a chance to get to know your neighbours and build strong bonds with them.
Process Of Getting ILO Supports In Your Plan
Coordinate with your local area coordinator (LAC) or planner about the housing and living options that you want.
Get started by the LAC getting some information from you, if your goal is to look into homes and places to live. And then based on the information you provide, the NDIA will consider your request and if it meets the NDIS funding criteria, we’ll determine how much support you need to explore and design your ILO package.
What’s included with NDIS Individualised Living Options (ILO)?
