About us

Independent Living Villages is a charity with extensive experience in SDA. At our heart is the desire to provide residents with SDA housing that meets their needs, in a place they call home.

Living Area

Our History

Independent Living Villages, also known as ILV, is a registered 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.

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