Individualised living option supports are typically added to your plan in 2 stages.
Individualised living option Stage 1: Exploration and Design
The first stage is all about exploring and designing your support package. It’s about supporting you to work out where you want to live, who with, what support you’ll need and who will support you.
We’ll provide funding so you can work with a support provider to do this. Your family and friends can be involved too. The amount of funding we provide will depend on how much support you need for this. You’ll need to develop a service proposal during this stage.

We’ll work out the amount of funding to put in your plan using the price limits in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits .
Individualised living option Stage 2: Supports
The second stage is putting your individualised living option supports in place. It also includes support for monitoring and adjusting supports if your needs change. We’ll provide funding to pay for the supports in your individualised living option.

We’ll work out the amount of funding to put in your plan based on the costs to deliver and monitor the supports. You’ll need to detail the supports and costs in the service proposal you develop in Stage 1.
All individualised living options are different. You will need to agree on the payment and financial arrangements together with your formal supports and your provider.
When we add stage 1 funding to your plan, we’ll let you know an estimate for your stage 2 funding amount. This lets you and your provider design a service proposal to match the funding you may receive.
Before we add funding in your plan for either stage, we’ll make sure that supports meet the NDIS funding criteria.
