An individualised living option is support to live the way that suits you. It is funding to help you make choices about where you live, who you live with and how you want to be supported.
First, we provide funding to design your supports, and then to implement and maintain your supports.
This support is designed to give you a sense of home and belonging, and to build independence. You’ll decide who you live with, and how they, and other supports including family, friends and other networks, support you.
It can include things like personal care, support to build your skills, or support with household tasks like cooking, cleaning or doing your washing.
Informal supports like family, friends and other networks can complement your paid supports. Individualised living option supports are developed by you, with assistance if you need it.
