What is Individualised Living Options?

Individualised Living Options (ILO) is an exciting alternative to Supported Independent Living (SIL). It’s a support model that puts you in control, allowing you to choose your home and set up supports in a way that best suits your lifestyle. With ILO, you have the freedom to create a living environment that reflects your preferences and aspirations.

Key Features of Individualised Living Options:

  • Personalised Living: ILO supports help you decide how you want to live, where you want to live, and who you want to live with.

  • Diverse Housing Choices: ILO offers a variety of living arrangements. You can share your home with friends or housemates, live with a host family, or even live independently with the necessary support.
