Independent Living Villages

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Your Place to Call Home

Welcome to Independent Living Villages (ILV)

We are a registered charity and NDIS provider of purpose designed SDA homes for people with complex needs to live with choice, freedom and independence.

We’re not just where you live, we’re the place you call home.

The place you get to enjoy your own space in your private apartment.

The space you enjoy with family and friends.

The place where you can connect with fellow residents in shared areas.

The space to live your life as you choose.

How ILV helps Support Coordinators with SDA for their clients

Are you a support coordinator looking for accommodation for a NDIS participant?

If you want to find a place for someone to call home, then get in touch by requesting a call below and we’ll call you back.

We can help you understand whether they qualify for SDA and provide guidance on navigating the SDA application process.

Are you an NDIS Participant or Carer and want to find out more?

If you or your family member have SDA in your plans then you can express interest in an ILV private apartment at one of our Sydney locations in the West and South West of Sydney.

You can view more about an ILV home here.

The first step is to assess whether you qualify.

Why Choose an ILV SDA home?


We’ve worked closely with people with disabilities, support coordinators and the NIDS to redefine specialist disability accommodation, giving you the freedom to live as you choose.

Private Accommodation

Each home is an individual apartment, with a kitchen and living space for privacy, plus access to communal space to enjoy the company of others.

Accessible Living

ILV homes have been designed to meet Improved Access and Fully Accessible SDA standards. Find our more here

High Quality

We believe that everyone is entitled to a comfortable, secure home and have developed our homes meet high quality standards.

Live with Family

Our homes are 1 or 2 bedroom apartments that allow you to live with your family, which is not usual for accessible living.

How Can I Apply for an ILV Home?
