Is Short Term Accommodation covered under the NDIS?

Respite may be an area that can be confusing for many people transitioning to the NDIS. The NDIA now recognises the importance of carers and families maintaining their health, wellbeing and resilience in order to meet the needs of people with a disability.

There are three levels of respite-like supports available for funding as part of plans:

N
Level 1: 7 to 14 days per year to allow the carer to attend key activities
N
Level 2: 14 to 28 days per year and includes a strategy to build capabilities for future independence.
N
Level 3: Equivalent of 28 days per year, when the carer provides support most days and informal support is at risk of not continuing due to the intensity of the support required or severe behavioural issues.
If you are eligible for respite funding, it will include funding for accommodation in a group residence for a short period of time – typically up to 14 days at a time. It will also include support for self-care, food, and activities.
