A Home of My Own


Home means different things to everyone

Home is a vital part of our lives. It not only provides us with security, privacy, comfort and control but it reflects our identity, our adulthood and our deep sense of who we are and how we connect and belong in our neighbourhood.

Valued Lives Foundation supports people with disability to live the life they choose! This includes supports to live in the place they call or would like to call home. We can support you on your journey by providing you with

  • Information
  • Customised coaching
  • System navigation
  • Specialist support to complete ILO funding application
  • Fee based services to design and implement your ILO or SILS plan

If you would like to talk with someone about your options, please contact the Valued Lives ILO Navigator on 9274-7760 or email info@valuedlives.org.au

What is NDIS ILO (Individualized Living Options)?

ILO is a package of supports that lets you choose where and how you live in the way that best suits you. ILO funding does not pay for a house.

Using your ILO funding, you can:

  • explore different ways to live – with friends, family or a host or alone
  • design a support package to help you live the way you choose

When exploring your ILO options we take the time to consider your preferences around how you want to live, your strengths, support needs, and your informal and community networks. Your ILO and the funding you receive will then be specific to your needs.

There are lots of choices with ILO. The purpose of an ILO is for you to live in a way that best suits you!
