Event description

Description

The NDIS is providing increased funding options to support people with a disability to live more inclusively - in a regular house, on a regular street, in a welcoming community.

The new NDIS Individual Living Options (ILOs) provide a range of exciting options, including:

1) Host Arrangements
Host Families or Individuals - living with a non-related supportive family or person, sharing their lives and providing some support. In return, the host receives an agreed reimbursement payment, as well as board and lodging from the DSP to cover day to day costs.

2) Co-resident
Live in Support Workers – a participant lives in their own home with a person who agrees to provide a level of support and companionship. In return they receive reduced rent and/or a payment.

3) Living Together
A participant lives in their own home with a person (or more than one person) who they have chosen via their existing relationships (intimate, family or friendship). This can include other people with a disability. A flexible package can allow for sharing of supports where required, or in some cases payments for some supports.

4) Living Alone
Living Alone, with Flexibility - a participant lives in their own home, with various stand by, drop in and informal supports.

Further, the NDIS is providing for more flexibility around Supported Independent Living (SILs) options, namely a more client directed approach with more choice and control in supports.

This NDIS participant and family information evening aims to give an introduction to ILOs and client directed SIL options:

How do these supports work?

Are these supports relevant to my situation?

What are the steps to put in place?

Join us for a interesting and engaging evening!
