Our History

ILV, also known as Independent Living Villages is a registered not-for-profit charity and NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation provider (SDA).

Formed in 2016, ILV was at the forefront of redefining the concept of accessible homes, working with NDIS participants, support partners and the NDIS, to create purpose designed homes suitable for people with complex disabilities and their families.

Our homes align with the NDIS Design Standard and guidelines, built as private apartments in a community environment so residents have the choice and freedom of how they want to live.

ILV partner with highly experienced accessible home design architects, builders, investors and Supported Independent Living providers to create a new style of SDA homes.
