Short Term Accommodation & Assistance (STAA), Crisis Accommodation & Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)
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. Such as: a change in circumstances, or a crisis situation that puts the person at risk of harming themselves or others, or being harmed. This may extend to a situation where a person is unable to care for themselves.
Medium Term Accommodation - Somewhere to live if you can't move into your long term home because your disability supports aren't ready. To be eligible, you must have a home you’ll move into and you need somewhere else to live in the medium-term. Funding is usually for up to 90 days.
