Short Term Accommodation (STA)

What is Short Term Accommodation?

Short Term Accommodation (STA) is an opportunity for you to enjoy a short stay away from home. During your stay you can learn new skills, enjoy new activities, and meet new friends who share similar experiences.

How does Short Term Accommodation work?

You’ll enjoy a short stay away from home in a purpose-built property. We have a variety of properties available to us with all the appropriate supports you might need for your stay.

We’ll ensure you’re partnered with the best support worker for you and have all the supports you’ll need for your stay — from personal care, meal planning and cooking, to all of your community access needs.

What is support like in STA homes?

Our STA properties offer safe and comfortable accommodation with all the supports you need to thrive while you’re away. Your support worker will work with you and your wider support team to make sure you have everything you need for your stay.

Take on activities too

We absolutely love our Short Term Accommodation offering for the benefits it provides you with. You’ll get to take on new activities and capacity-building exercises of your choice. 

You could go to the beach, see a movie, head out to a sports game, or visit a local attraction. You’ll get to choose the activities you take on.
