Is Respite covered under the NDIS?

There are three levels of respite-like supports available for funding as part of plans:

Level 1: 7 to 14 days per year to allow the carer to attend key activities

Level 2: 14 to 28 days per year and includes a strategy to build capabilities for future independence.

Level 3: Equivalent of 28 days per year, when the carer provides support most days and informal support is at risk of not continuing due to the intensity of the support required or severe behavioural issues.

If you are eligible for respite funding, it will include funding for accommodation in a group residence for a short period of time – typically up to 14 days at a time. It will also include support for self-care, food, and activities.

Respite Support Services

Respite supports participants and their carers by giving carers short breaks from their caring responsibilities. It also gives participants time away from their families. For a participant, this might mean: joining a new community group.
