From time to time, you may require temporary supports that are different from your usual arrangements. These are non-typical days and may include short stays in a group-based facility (short-term accommodation), or additional in-home support and assisted living. This might include support for your needs within a given 24-hour period, such as assistance with daily personal activities, accommodation, food and negotiated activities. Typically, this type of support would be used for short periods of up to 14 days at a time.

Short-term accommodation, or assistance with daily life tasks in a group or shared living arrangement, may be funded under the Core Supports budget in your NDIS plan.
