Medium Term Accommodation can support you if you need somewhere to live while waiting for your confirmed long term housing solution. This means you need evidence that you have somewhere to live when your Medium Term Accommodation funding ends.

We only fund Medium Term Accommodation if:

  • you have a confirmed long term housing solution, and
  • you’re waiting for your disability related supports so you can move in to your long term housing solution.

For example, you might be waiting for:

  • home modifications to be ready
  • assistive technology to arrive
  • your confirmed Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) to be available.

We usually fund Medium Term Accommodation as a one-off support. This is because you won’t need Medium Term Accommodation once you move to your long term housing.

Medium Term Accommodation is usually for up to three months (90 days).

Medium Term Accommodation only covers the accommodation cost of where you stay. It doesn’t include day-to-day living costs like food, internet or electricity. Medium Term Accommodation also doesn’t include any personal care supports .
