HOW IT WORKS

The essential elements are:

  1. The Resident directs the NDIS to pay the Specialist Disability Payments to Independent Living Villages to enable Independent Living Villages to build his or her home.
  2. The Resident pays 25% of his or her DSP plus the CRA to Independent Living Villages for the ongoing maintenance of the home.
  3. The Resident is totally free to choose his or her support provider and to change that provider at any time. Independent Living Villages does not do service support so as to avoid any possible conflict of interest.
