UNLOCK THE BENEFITS OF SHORT-TERM ACCOMMODATION WITH CARE WITH US
Are you an NDIS participant looking to make use of short-term accommodation services? Look no further than Care With Us! Our team can talk to your support coordinator and provide assistance in arranging respite/STA services that are tailored to your specific needs.
The NDIS provides short-term accommodation services that allow NDIS participants to live outside their home for a short period of time, supported by STA/respite providers. Thanks to this service, participants can access up to 14 consecutive days or 28 days per year in respite/STA support, depending on the individual’s circumstances. Core budget funding may be used for the purpose of arranging this type of accommodation, and it is not necessarily necessary for respite/STA funding consideration to be included in one’s plan.
To learn more about these services, contact our team today and get the most out of your NDIS plan! We look forward to assisting you in finding the perfect solution for your specific needs.

Short Term Accommodation, including respite, is support for when you need to live out of home for a short period.
Short Term Accommodation funding can be used for respite to support you and your carers. This gives your carers a short break from their caring role.
Sometimes a short stay away from home:
- gives you the chance to try new things
- can be a place to make new friends or develop new skills
- may help to maintain your current living situation by giving your informal supports a break.
Short Term Accommodation may suit your needs if your usual support network isn’t available for a short period.
Short Term Accommodation includes:
- personal care
- activities you and the provider agree to
Usually STA/Respite is funded up to 28 days of Short Term Accommodation per year. You can use your Short Term Accommodation funding flexibly. For example, you might want to use it in a block of up to 14 days at a time or for one weekend a month.
If you already have funding in your Core budget, you can use this for Short Term Accommodation. You can choose to use your Core budget on a range of supports like Short Term Accommodation to suit your needs.
If you need short term out of home care talk to your Support Coordinator, Local Area Coordinator, Early Childhood Partner or planner.
Remember, you may not need funding for Short Term Accommodation put into your plan. You can choose to use your Core budget on supports like Short Term Accommodation if it helps you pursue your goals

Talk to your support coordinator, local area coordinator, early childhood partner or planner if you’d like to learn more about Short Term Accommodation for your children.
Short Term Accommodation needs to support you to pursue your goals. This might be something like increasing your independence or building your skills, which may also result in carers having a break. Learn more about setting goals.
Short Term Accommodation is not for housing crisis situations. Short Term Accommodation can only be funded where the need relates directly to your disability.
