Short Term Accommodation
Our Short Term Accommodation (STA) enables people with a disability to experience living away from home in a supportive environment. STA provides time-limited breaks for parents and carers of people with a disability on an episodic basis, to support and maintain primary relationships. Our team supports individuals in a person-centred environment. We provide a professional and innovative service that promotes choice, personal development and life experiences, helping people to achieve their unique goals and aspirations throughout our approach of achieving together.
