This week's featured website is one of our own projects. The website is designed to be used by those involved in the two-year pilot project (participants and their families, and service provider staff), and by other people with disabilities and their families who are considering their long term plans.
The goal of the Independent Living Support Initiative (ILSI) is to help people with a disability who have ageing carers and who aspire to live more independently in the community, to achieve that aim and to develop stable long-term accommodation arrangements.
ILSI provides person centred intensive training and formal support services, and helps families develop their own support networks. This initiative is funded by Ageing, Disability and Home Care, Dept of Family and Community Services NSW, and has been designed in collaboration and consultation with Down Syndrome NSW, UnitingCare Disability and House With No Steps (Hunter Region).
