Short Term Accommodation and Respite (STA)

Everybody needs a break from the ordinary from time to time.

In the NDIS world, what we call respite is now called Short Term Accommodation and Assistance.

Our short term accommodation can give you the chance to meet new people and try new activities in a supported environment. It means parents and carers can take a break too.

Frequently asked questions

  • How long can I stay?

    You can stay for one night, just a day, a weekend or longer. It’s up to you and the amount of funding you have included in your plan.

    If you are looking for longer term accommodation, Supported Independent Living is likely to be included in your plan.

  • Do you have services for children and for adults?

    Our accommodation is ready for both younger and older people.

It’s a chance to grow their capacity and get a feel for what it would be like to live independently.

Young adults eager to experience independence are adding to their skills during short term stays organised by Anglicare.

Anglicare supports these young people to enjoy short stays in accommodation where they can undertake recreational activities and be involved in the day-to-day running of a household.
