National Ability Service

Short Term Accommodation

Short Term Accommodation, including respite, is funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from your usual home.

It covers the cost of your care in another place for up to 14 days at a time. You might have a short stay with other people, or by yourself. It’s often funded when your usual carers aren’t available, or for you to try new things.

This service may be used for the purpose of:

  • Preparing to move out of home
  • Increasing independence and life skills
  • Developing new relationships


We also offer Short Term Accommodation options entirely customised and unique which reflect who you are and what you want to get out of your break.

Each quote is created custom for you and may include:

  • Travel Cost
  • Support Worker
  • Cost of accommodation
  • Meals/Beverages
  • Cost to attend activities e.g. theme park, movies, bowling
