ILO is a significant new funding opportunity for contemporary housing and support models. Explore the operational, business and design considerations of ILO in this two part workshop series.
10:30am - 2:30pm AEDT
ILO: Exploration & Design
ILO provides Australians with disability support to move out of the family home, to live independently and be better included in the community. The funding differs from traditional disability support options in many ways, including the separation of housing provider and support service. ILO funding will ensure that participant demand for contemporary housing and support options will be higher than ever before. The challenge will be to facilitate NDIS participants to choose where they live and with whom; with access to a range of in-home, residential and other services in the community.
This 3/4 day workshop will explore:
· The roles of different services in the exploration and design of ILO
· Eliciting participant preferences, strengths, assets, support requirements
· Identifying informal and community supports
· The scope of NDIS funded ILO and how it compares with traditional support options
· Where ILO fits between flexible core supports and SIL
· The four most common ILO approaches including the key benefits, risks and requirements/safeguards
· Inspiration from innovative support options from overseas
· Real life examples of ILO in practice
· Assessing the risks in the context of the participant’s preferred way of living
This workshop is ideally suited to Support Coordinators who will need to facilitate ILO, Service Providers considering ILO, and Allied Health Professionals interested in influencing independence, choice and control.
10:30am - 2:30pm AEDT
Running a Successful ILO Business
The launch of Independent Living Options (ILO) funding is a fabulous opportunity for providers to establish new contemporary housing and support business models for people with disability. It provides Australians with disability support to move out of the family home, to live independently and be better included in the community. With $7.4 billion being spent each year in SIL support, it is hardly surprising the NDIA is looking for alternatives. ILO funding differs from traditional disability support options in many ways, including the separation of housing provider and support service.
This 3/4 day workshop designed for providers looking to enter the ILO market, will explore:
· The scope of NDIS funded ILO, how it compares with traditional support options and, where it fits between flexible core supports and SIL
· The four most common ILO approaches including efforts to establish/ maintain
· Real life examples of ILO in practice
· Managing partnerships between the participant, their family and providers
· Resources for monitoring and program design
· Barriers to ILO market entry
· Key capabilities required of providers
· Pricing and quoting of ILO
· Current supply and estimated demand for ILO
