Medium Term Accommodation

The NDIS can fund Medium Term Accommodation so you have somewhere to live while waiting for your confirmed long term housing solution. It may be funded if you’re waiting for your disability related supports and have a confirmed long term housing solution.

Medium Term Accommodation funding is usually for up to 90 days.

Short Term Accommodation

 
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.
