NDIS Funding

The NDIS doesn’t always make things easy to understand, and accessing funding for a stay with us (or any other short-term or respite* accommodation) may feel a bit confusing.

The NDIS does not have a specific item of respite* in plans. Funding for what was traditionally known as respite*, now known as ‘short-term accommodation’ can be spent from core supports. You can visit the NDIS price guide for more information — a description on page 24.

The current NDIS prescribed rate for support and accommodation for 24 hours stay with us starts at $1546.39 (code 01_058_0115_1_1), you can check this on page 6 of the NDIS Support Catalogue.

Check off the answers to the questions below to see if your funding package will cover the stay, and what to do next.

  1. Do you have an NDIS plan for your young person?

  • YES - Continue to question 2

  • NO - You are welcome to self-fund a stay with us

2. Are you plan managed or self-managed?

  • YES - Great! Make contact with Ang to discuss your booking and needs

  • NO - You are welcome to self-fund a stay with us

*Respite is defined as “a short period of rest or relief from something difficult or unpleasant”, and we don’t think that’s a nice way to talk about your loved one, so where possible we won’t use it!
