Short Term Respite under the NDIS

The NDIA makes it posible for carers and families to have a break so as to have time to do everyday activities or just to relax, deal with stress and look after yourself.

  • There are three levels of short term support funded by the NDIA
  • Level 1: Provides funded to eligible participants for 7 to 14 days per year to allow the carer to attend key activities
  • Level 2: Provides funded to eligible participants for 14 to 28 days per year and includes a strategy to build capabilities for future independence.
  • Level 3: Provides funded to eligible participants for an equivalent of 28 days per year.
